MVB Financial Corp. has sold all of the assets of its wholly-owned subsidiary, MVB Insurance, LLC in Fairmont, W. Va., to USI Insurance Services LLC. MVB Insurance will retain the assets related to, and continue to operate, its title insurance business. The sale was effective at 11:59 p.m. on June 30, 2016, the date of the definitive agreement between MVB, MVB Insurance and USI.

MVB Insurance CEO L. Randall “Randy” Cober, CIC, President Kenneth Juskowich, and all employees have been extended offers to remain with USI as part of the acquisition. The two entities said they are working together “to ensure a smooth transition and the continuation of quality service for all current and future clients.”
