Marsh & McLennan Agency plans to build a national business to serve the needs of mid-sized companies across the country. In a step to do so, it has acquired The NIA Group LLC, one of the largest independent insurance agencies in the Northeast, as well as its New York City office Kornreich-NIA.

“The addition of The NIA Group and Kornreich-NIA to our firm gives us a strong operation in the New York metropolitan area and Florida,” says David Eslick, chairman and CEO of Marsh & McLennan Agency. “We’re delighted to welcome the leadership team and the employees of The NIA Group and Kornreich-NIA to our firm. They have a well-earned and longstanding reputation for professionalism and service excellence, which we view as essential elements for the national organization we are building at Marsh & McLennan Agency.”

Established in 1926, The NIA Group has annual revenue of $62 million and has offices in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Florida. Headquartered in Paramus, N.J., The NIA Group has approximately 400 employees and provides property/casualty insurance, employee benefits, personal insurance and life insurance/estate planning.

“We are pleased to be joining with David and the leadership of Marsh & McLennan Agency and look forward to working as part of the team to create one of the preeminent national organizations in our industry,” says Paul Gross, chairman of The NIA Group.
