April 10, 2012

Worldwide Facilities, a Los Angeles-based independent surplus-lines broker and managing general agency, acquired assets of Privett Special Risk Services, a New York City-based wholesaler.

Privett Special Risk Services was founded in 1997 by Don Privett. The firm’s management and staff — including Greg O’Connell, vice president and broker; Peter Tichacek, broker; and production support staff Julie Stewart, Suzanne Quist, Beth Rogers and Nancy Davis — will all join Worldwide Facilities.

Worldwide Facilities said the acquisition will help the firm’s geographical expansion and will further establish a presence in the New York marketplace.

In addition to its Los Angeles headquarters, Worldwide has offices in San Francisco and Irvine, California, Seattle, Washington, Phoenix, Arizona, Chicago, Illinois, St. Louis, Missouri, New York, New York and Atlanta, Georgia.
