Kaplansky Insurance has started 2019 off with a bang. The agency, which is fast becoming one of the largest independent insurance agencies, not only in Massachusetts and New England, but throughout the Northeast, has announced the acquisition of KW Insurance Agency.
According to the terms of the agreement, KW Insurance, which has two locations in Cambridge and Dedham, will merge its Dedham location into Kaplansky’s corporate headquarters in Needham. KW’s Cambridge location will continue its operations in the same location, while re-branding under the Kaplansky name.
“KW is a highly respected agency,” said Ely Kaplansky, President and CEO of Kaplansky Insurance. “As we continue to build a strong presence in the New England region, we are excited to have the talented and highly experienced KW team join Kaplansky.”
The first acquisition for Kaplansky in 2019, but likely not the last…
With the addition of KW Insurance, Kaplansky Insurance has now acquired an impressive 32 agencies over the course of four decades. The following is a re-cap of the four Massachusetts agencies it acquired just during 2018:
- Kaplansky Acquires Its 30th Independent Insurance Agency in Massachusetts
- Kaplansky Insurance Acquires Massachusetts’ Kelleher & Mackey Agency
- Kaplansky Insurance Acquires The Anthony & Malcolm Agency
- And Then There Were 31: Kaplansky Insurance Acquires Burak Insurance
In commenting on this latest acquisition, Mr. Kaplansky notes that 2019 will likely be another year of expansion for the agency.
“We continue to remain focused on adding high-quality agencies with a solid reputation and talented colleagues with a dedication to client service,” added Mr. Kaplansky.
