CHICAGO, May 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Hub International Limited (Hub), a leading global insurance brokerage, announced today that it has acquired the assets of Ion Insurance Corporation (Ion Insurance). Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Headquartered in Cheshire, Connecticut, Ion Insurance is a full service, independent insurance agency providing personal and business insurance solutions throughout the region.

"We are excited to have David and his talented team join our group to strengthen our commitment and approach to Southern New England," said Shawn McLaughlin, President of Hub New England. "With Ion Insurance, we will provide clients with the best of both worlds – the benefits of local services with deep resources and the strength of a national firm."
David Rotatori, President & CEO of Ion Bank, stated that the sale will provide additional capital for the financial institution, allowing the Bank to reinvest into the communities that Ion serves and to continue with their expansion into other towns and cities in Connecticut.
