April 8, 2013

Strickland Insurance Brokers Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Goldsboro, N.C.-based Strickland Insurance Group Inc., announced it has acquired the assets of Palmyra, Va.-based Tower Transportation Underwriters Inc.

Tower Transportation Underwriters is a managing general agency that has been servicing the needs of independent agents in Virginia and Delaware since 1963. Tower Transportation Underwriters, which has specialized in commercial and public transportation risks since its founding, will now become part of Strickland Insurance Brokers.

Stamford, Conn.-based Philo Smith Capital Corp. served as Strickland Insurance Brokers’ exclusive consultant for this transaction.
