Hutchinson Traylor, a leading regional provider of risk management and insurance services and benefits consulting, announced the acquisition of Greer Insurance Group, according to a press release from the group.

Effective Aug. 1, 2019, the transaction includes both of Greer’s office locations in McDonough, Georgia, and Jackson, Georgia.

“Both Adam and Kyle (Greer agency principals) began their agency careers at Hutchinson Traylor, so this feels more like a homecoming,” said Hutchinson Traylor President, C. Wesley Smith, Jr in the release. “Their agency is known for deep coverage expertise and strong client focus, and that has led to impressive growth over the last decade. We are excited for them to rejoin the Hutchinson Traylor family.”

Known as a leader in the state and region, Traylor has been recognized as a Best Practices Agency by the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America for the fifth consecutive year in a row — an award given to only a small, elite group of top-performing agencies in the country.

For more than 100 years, Georgia families and businesses have counted on Hutchinson Traylor for premier property and casualty insurance products and services, as well as world-class employee benefits consulting.

Hutchinson Traylor employs over 85 professionals in offices located in Atlanta, Columbus, Griffin, Jackson, LaGrange and Moultrie.

“The Greer agency has a particularly strong focus in commercial contracting and personal insurance. We welcome further expansion into the Atlanta area of our private client coverage offering and look forward to a smooth conversion over the next couple of months,” said Michael Dollar, principal and chief operating officer in the release.
