Independent insurance broker Higginbotham, based in Fort Worth, and Commercial Global Insurance (CGI) are merging their operations in Friendswood, Texas.
CGI is an independent broker in Deer Park, Texas. CGI will merge its five-person group into Higginbotham’s office in nearby Friendswood this month.
Beginning in 2008, Higginbotham started a statewide expansion strategy where it partners with like-minded brokers that add geographic scale and service capacity to its practice. The firm entered Friendswood in 2010 when it merged with a local agency.
Higginbotham’s union with CGI is its second merger in the greater area and brings its total number of employees to 660 in 22 offices.
Higginbotham provides property, liability, life and health insurance, risk management and employee benefit services to businesses and individuals.
CGI is a boutique agency that provides commercial insurance and bonds to businesses and investors primarily in the industrial, environmental and construction industries.
CGI will start operating under the Higginbotham name when it moves to the firm’s office in Friendswood. CGI founder Blake Barnes will serve as a managing director of the combined firm.
