Following the transaction, MSIA’s employees, including managing partners Jim Pietro and Paul Pietro, are joining THG and will continue to operate out of its two offices in Worcester, Mass., and Taunton, Mass.

MSIA provides a range of property and casualty insurance and employee benefits products to businesses and individuals throughout the New England region. It specializes in developing tailored risk management and insurance programs for automobile dealerships.
