“I couldn’t be more excited to have The Wooditch Company join Hub LAOC.”

The Wooditch Company president and CEO Bill Wooditch said: “Hub provides an ideal platform for us to continue to grow.

“Hub has strong capabilities and resources in all key areas, including speciality industries, claims, technology and more, to perfectly meet the needs of our clients.”

This deal comes as Hub International signed an agreement last week to secure an undisclosed minority investment from funds managed by US-based private equity company Leonard Green & Partners (LGP).

Last month, the insurance intermediary and financial services provider acquired the assets of independently owned insurance agency DeFranco Insurance with a focus on providing personal and commercial insurance offerings.

Hub has more than 16,000 employees in offices across North America.
