RICHMOND, Va.–The Hilb Group, LLC (THG) announced the acquisition of Mahwah, New Jersey-based P.A. Post Agency, LLC and its subsidiaries. The transaction became effective April 1, 2016.

Through four generations of family ownership, P.A. Post Agency has remained one of the country’s premier transportation insurance agencies since its founding in 1915. It has since provided high-caliber insurance products for all transportation classes, including school and charter buses, ambulances, limos and taxis.

“Adding one of the nation’s leading transportation specialists grows our resources and ramps up our transportation practice considerably,” said Bob Hilb, THG CEO. “A long-standing family tradition of outstanding, unwavering client service makes P.A. Post Agency a perfect addition to the Hilb Group. We could not be more excited to welcome Brad Post and his team to THG.”

Brad Post, P.A. Post Agency president, will continue to lead the company’s 43 employees under its existing name.

“We’re proud of how our family has built P.A. Post Agency and – because of like-minded values and a similar approach to client service – couldn’t be more excited to join THG,” Post said. “As we help grow THG’s transportation practice, our team is looking forward to benefitting from the training, sales and other resources THG offers its associates.”

“The expanded reach we will have as part of THG is a significant added value,” said Tom Post, P.A. Post Agency managing director and CMO. “Leveraging the THG platform to distribute our market-leading products and service capabilities will stimulate growth to benefit this new partnership.”

With the addition of P.A Post, THG now has more than 500 associates in 48 offices nationwide and is one of the top 40 insurance brokers in the U.S.
