Buffalo, NY (PRWEB) October 14, 2014
Lawley Insurance added to its New York City region footprint by acquiring S. Turteltaub Sons of Bayonne, NJ. The merger, which officially commenced on October 1, 2014, added two former Turteltaub employees into the Lawley Sachs office in Florham Park, NJ, which increased the tri-state region office to 32 employees.
Bringing new employees into the growing New Jersey branch office is part of the overall New York City and downstate growth plan for the independent broker, which was ranked as the 54th largest broker in the United States this year.
“We continue to expand our footprint around the New York City market by bringing on the experienced team from Turteltaub Sons,” stated Chris Ross, Principal of Lawley Insurance. “We are excited about the opportunity to extend our reach of insurance options in Northern New Jersey.”
“We can now offer our clients a wider range of products and services with the experienced team and depth Lawley Insurance brings,” said Ron Silbergeld, owner of S. Turteltaub Sons. “We’re backed by the strength of 350 employees who bring a wide range of specialties.”
“I am eager to bring our expertise under the Lawley Insurance umbrella. Joining a Top 100 Agency and having access to all of the resources a large regional broker can bring will help us service our current and future clients better,” said Ron Silbergeld, owner of S. Turteltaub Sons. “There is a great opportunity with the growth of Lawley Insurance in northern New Jersey and the products and services we can now offer to this region.”
“We welcome Ron and his team to the organization, and are excited to continue our growth in the tri-state area. With the efficiencies we can bring being headquartered in Buffalo and having staff on the ground in Westchester, New Jersey and Long Island to service claims and risk management, we bring the best of both worlds to customers in that region,” added Ross.
