Hub International Limited, a global insurance brokerage, has announced it has acquired the assets of Fidelity, including Fidelity Associates Inc. and Fidelity Associates Financial Services Inc., which serve Spokane and the greater Pacific Northwest region. Fidelity will become part of Hub International Northwest’s operations, increasing its footprint to more than 18 offices and 300 employees and making it one of the largest brokers in the state, with a significant presence in both western and eastern Washington, according to Hub International. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
Fidelity is a full-service commercial lines, personal lines and employee benefits agency and brokerage, with industry expertise in education, retail, wholesale, construction, manufacturing, service, wineries, and non-profits, according to Hub International. It has roots in eastern Washington and the Spokane community that date back to 1906 and is in its fourth generation of ownership with brothers Scott and Craig Jones. Scott Jones, president and CEO of Fidelity, in addition to continuing his current client relationships, will join Hub Northwest as EVP managing all of Hub Northwest’s operations in eastern Washington. He will report to Andy Prill, Hub Northwest’s president and CEO. Craig Jones also is continuing with Hub Northwest in his current position as account executive. Fidelity’s current team will continue to operate from its existing location in Spokane.
“Fidelity is a great addition to Hub Northwest. It’s a quality group of professionals and a growing organization,” Prill said. “Their middle-market focus and expertise in personal and commercial lines insurance, as well as employee benefits, increases Hub’s ability to take a big step forward in eastern Washington. There is a tremendous opportunity for growth in this part of the state and I look forward to Scott leading our efforts in providing industry-best solutions to customers.”
“Our Fidelity team is really excited to be a part of Hub. Our local expertise and extraordinary service, combined now with Hub’s global resources and carrier relations, arm us for a strong future and will be great additions for our customers,” Scott Jones said.
