GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Feb. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The year 2013 proved to be very active and productive for Acrisure, a leading national insurance brokerage, since its acquisition by private equity firm Genstar Capital, as the company grew its business to over $80 million in annual revenue, more than double the prior year.
