Our commitment to our communities, clients and to our company partners will remain the foundation for all we do” added Mr. Kaplanksy

The Brooklawn deal marks the 26th agency acquisition for Kaplansky Insurance in 20 years and the 10th agency acquisition since 2012. The company, which is headquartered in Needham now operates out of 14 different locations throughout the Commonwealth and shows no signs of slowing down its growth.
