Commenting on the deal, Shaver said: “Hub is a perfect fit for us, and we are excited to join a firm with such critical mass to better serve clients. We will accomplish a lot for our clients as a result of this partnership.”

Hub Gulf South president Shaun Norris said: “Shaver-Robichaux is a highly-regarded agency that will add great depth to our team.

“They will make our strong firm even stronger and deeper. We are very fortunate to have them join Hub.”
