Brown & Brown of Detroit Expands Via Recent Merger With Bolton & Company

(Sterling Heights) . . . Todd Piersol, Executive Vice President of Brown & Brown of Detroit recently announced the Detroit profit center’s merger with Bolton & Company, effective May 1.

A long standing fixture in the community, Bolton & Company was founded in 1912 and was located in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. They served the needs of their clients in the areas of property and casualty insurance and risk management consulting.

Merging the two companies was a natural fit due to their similarities. Todd Piersol stated, “We are thrilled to add Chris and Lisa to our team at Brown & Brown of Detroit. Bolton & Company, like Brown & Brown, has thrived in the property and casualty arena, because of our commitment to putting the client first.”

Chris Bolton, former President and Owner of Bolton & Company agreed, adding, “As you can imagine, choosing a merger partner for a 103-year-old family owned insurance firm was a complicated proposition. My goal was to choose a firm with a decentralized structure that allowed me the flexibility to continue to provide the highly personal, professional service approach that has been the hallmark of Bolton & Company, while also providing the highest level of resources in both the property/casualty and employee benefits arenas. I made the right choice!”

Brown & Brown offices in Michigan comprise the third largest segment of insurance brokerage in the state, placing over $500 million in insurance premiums for our clients. The firm is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Brown & Brown Insurance, the sixth largest insurance intermediary in the United States.
