RogersGray has announced it has entered into a partnership agreement with Baldwin Risk Partners (BRP Group Inc.) effective July 1, 2021.
The move is a tremendous opportunity for the local insurance group that will now have national scale and access to more carriers as RogersGray becomes the platform agency for BRP New England, meaning that any future growth or acquisitions will all be folded into the RogersGray brand.
RogersGray brand, offices and more than 200 employees will remain and the company expects to be adding more positions, said Mike Robinson, RogersGray chairman and co-president, BRP New England region.
“We are so excited to keep the RogersGray team and brand completely intact while adding a tremendous group of resources for our clients. It’s an absolute win-win for clients and colleagues,” he added.
With the insurance industry continuing to shrink by consolidation, the move made sense to RogersGray leadership.
“We’re partnering with a firm that gives us scale and more tools in our toolbox to help clients, and create opportunities for the colleagues that work at RogersGray,” said David Robinson, RogersGray president and chief executive officer, who will become co-president, New England Region. “We have worked extremely hard to ensure there are no downsides for our team or clients during this entire process.”
RogersGray has been named one of Insurance Journal’s Top 100 independent property/casualty agencies in the U.S. and provides risk solutions to commercial clients across a broad range of industries, with particular strengths in real estate, construction and utilities, and brings to BRP Group an attractive coastal personal lines footprint.
“RogersGray is one of the top independent firms in the Northeast, featuring a history of growth and an exceptional group of talent led by an accomplished management team buying into BRP Group’s long-term vision,” said Trevor Baldwin, chief executive officer of BRP Group. “RogersGray will significantly bolster our geographic footprint and product offerings in New England and the broader Northeast region. David, Michael and their incredibly talented team have prioritized client service above all else, while also fostering a dynamic colleague-centric culture that is clearly aligned with what we are building at BRP Group, and we are thrilled to welcome the RogersGray team to the BRP family.”
