Expands Company's Presence in New England, Cape Cod Region

HUB International Limited announced today that it has acquired substantially all of the assets of The Hudson Eldridge Insurance Agency, Inc. (Hudson).  Hudson will become part of HUB International New England (HUB New England), expanding this operation’s current presence in the Cape Cod region of Massachusetts.  Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Based in North Chatham, Massachusetts, Hudson is a full-service brokerage firm employing six professionals, all of whom work at this location. Susan M. Schilling, Hudson’s president, founded the agency in 1988 and later that same year purchased The Hudson Eldridge Insurance Agency, an 80 year old brokerage firm with extensive relationships within the local community.

“We are very excited to have Susan Schilling and her team become part of the HUB International organization,” said Charles J. Brophy, president and chief executive officer of HUB New England. “Through her leadership and vision, the Hudson Eldridge Agency has continued to grow and provide superior service to its customers. As part of the HUB International team, we are confident that Ms. Schilling and her staff will be able to further expand their offerings to clients and bring more value-added services and resources to the table.”

"The insurance business has become a very complex business and so I am pleased to associate my agency with the professionals at HUB to give this agency more depth and strength for the challenges of tomorrow and going forward in the future," said Susan M. Schilling, president of Hudson Eldridge Insurance Agency.

Headquartered in Chicago, IL, HUB International Limited is a leading North American insurance brokerage that provides a broad array of property and casualty, reinsurance, life and health, employee benefits, investment and risk management products and services through offices located in the United States and Canada.
