Chicago March 5, 2015 -

Hub International Limited (Hub), a leading global insurance brokerage, announced today that it has acquired the assets of Laubacher Insurance Agency, Inc. (Laubacher), servicing Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo Counties, CA. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.  The agencies will become part of the California operations of Hub International Insurance Services (Hub California). 

Laubacher is a full-service property and casualty, employee benefits and personal lines agency and brokerage with locations in Oxnard and Solvang, California. A focus on farm and ranch insurance has made the agency a longstanding resource for the California tri-counties. The firm's owners, Tom Laubacher and Harry Crosby, will join Hub California as Senior Vice Presidents, reporting to Darren Caesar, Senior Executive Vice President.  With this latest acquisition, Hub California will employ more than 950 employees in the state.

"California is a diverse and complicated insurance landscape, and Hub continues to build the local market expertise of the state through acquisition," Caesar noted. "Laubacher has a rich heritage in the tri-counties and their farm and ranch expertise is a strong fit for Hub's continued growth in the region."
