The three insurance brokerages fthat are now part of Hub International are: Citizens Clair Insurance Group (Clair), based in Norristown (Philadelphia), Pennsylvania; Brewer & Lord, based in Norwell (Boston), Massachusetts; and Feitelberg Insurance, based in Fall River, Massachusetts. On a combined basis, the three brokerages had revenue of approximately $45 million in 2005, and operate from 19 offices in Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.
