Chicago-based Hub International Limited (Hub) announced today that its Northwest operating unit has acquired the assets of Rettenmier Benefits Group, Inc. (Rettenmier), an Everett, Washington-based employee benefits consulting and insurance brokerage firm serving businesses and individuals in the Pacific Northwest. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. Last week Hub had announced its acquisition of Bothell, Washington-based Meier Insurance Agency.
The employees of the Rettenmier firm, which was established in 1960, will join Hub Northwest and continue to operate from their current Everett location due to their long-standing relationships in the local community. The addition of this location expands Hub Northwest’s presence to a new territory north of Seattle. As part of Hub Northwest, the Rettenmier team will now be able to offer their clients expanded commercial and personal lines insurance solutions.
Hub describes Meier Insurance as a full-service insurance brokerage firm offering commercial lines, personal lines, and employee benefits products and services to customers throughout the Pacific Northwest.
Meier is the second largest member of The Advantage Group, a group of independent brokers, which Hub said gives the agency scale with many top-rated carriers and promotes cross-selling opportunities. The team from Meier will move to Hub Northwest’s existing offices in Bothell.
