Alliant Insurance Services (http://www.alliant.com), the nation’s largest specialty insurance brokerage firm, has launched Alliant Americas, signifying an aggressive growth strategy for its commercial business. The new organization will expand Alliant’s middle market presence through strategic acquisitions and investments.
“The goal of Alliant Americas is to create a new standard of excellence in middle market insurance solutions,” said Tom Corbett, Chairman and CEO of Alliant. “The initiative will focus on the acquisition of robust organizations with a shared entrepreneurial culture and value system. This expansion strategy will be built upon the foundation of our existing middle-market business, which stands in a position of great strength.”
Alliant Americas’ acquisition criteria will place a high value on companies in populous areas throughout the United States with a proven history of growth and a strong management team. The organization will be led by Sean McConlogue, who will serve as President of Alliant Americas and be responsible for the strategic direction and leadership of the group. McConlogue currently serves as President of Alliant Specialty Insurance Services (ASIS) and will continue in this role.
According to McConlogue, Alliant Americas represents a partnership opportunity that is unique in the marketplace.
“Alliant Americas will provide a ‘ground-floor’ opportunity for mid-sized agencies to partner with a growing and influential organization that combines the best in service, expertise, and innovation,” he said. “This creates a strong value proposition for their client base and access to the capital, sophistication, program relationships, and resources to propel their business to new levels of success.”
McConlogue will be supported by Alliant’s corporate team, which will play a significant role in leading mergers and acquisitions as well as post-closing integration.
“Alliant Americas is being built with a deliberate vision,” said Greg Zimmer, President and CFO of Alliant. “It aims to capture the very best of professional service, investing in organizations and people who share our passion for creating outstanding client relationships. Part of our vision is to enhance these relationships even further by providing our partners with access to Alliant's proprietary products and expertise. We are pleased that Sean will be directing this effort and are confident that his leadership will take our commercial business to new heights.”
