Virginia-based Hilb Group Expands in New York State

September 21, 2011

The Hilb Group, a Glen Allen, Va.-based holding company that focuses on acquiring mid-market agencies, is further expanding in New York State. The company opened a new office in Rochester and also expanded an existing office in Bay Shore for Endorsed Administrators Inc.

Endorsed Administrators in Bay Shore, acquired by The Hilb Group in July 2010, is endorsed by more than 40 New York medical and dental associations to provide insurance products and services to their members. Both the new office in Rochester and the expanded office in Bay Shore will focus on selling Endorsed Administrators’ disability and life products for the medical and dental community.

The Hilb Group is also bringing in new personnel to staff the two offices. Shane Barton, Mark Blakeney and Joseph Bianchi are joining the Rochester office as vice presidents and financial advisors. Sonja Bauer is joining the Bay Shore office as vice president.

The Hilb Group was founded in 2009 by Robert J. Hilb, a former corporate vice president of Hilb Rogal & Hobbs, and his father, Robert H. Hilb, co-founder and former CEO and chairman of Hilb Rogal & Hobbs. (Hilb Rogal & Hobbs was acquired by Willis Group for $2.1 billion in 2008.)
