DAYTON, Ohio, Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Norman-Spencer Agency, Inc., a leading national property and casualty insurance provider, announced today that it has completed the acquisition of Northern Star Management, Inc. (Northern Star). Based out of New Jersey since 1997, Northern Star has been an underwriting management company and wholesale producer working with a network of brokers and agents to offer specialized transportation insurance solutions.
The addition of Northern Star provides a complement to Norman-Spencer's program offerings.
