Clegg Insurance expands into Palm Beach County with latest acquisition

CLEARWATER, Fla. – Clegg Insurance Group finalized the acquisition of the property and casualty division of iCan Benefit Group late September in Boca Raton, Florida, adding more than 1,500 clients to their book of business and expanding further into south Florida.

This is Clegg Insurance Group’s fourth acquisition since its inception nearly a decade ago.

While iCan’s existing clients may notice a new name associated with the business, they can rest assured as Clegg Insurance already operates throughout the state and plans to keep a local office in the Boca Raton – West Palm Beach area to serve the local Palm Beach clientele.

“Personally, I’m excited to take on a bigger role in the south Florida insurance space, as I began my career just down the road in Boca Raton with a national brokerage house before starting my own business,” said Ryan Clegg, CEO of Clegg Insurance Group. “We’re not only excited about adding the new physical office location, but we’re elated to add this very talented existing team to our roster, which will continue to service our customers throughout the area.”

As a result of the acquisition, Clegg Insurance Group’s annual premiums will increase to approximately $15 million per year, moving the agency into a larger insurance brokerage category.

“At the end of the day, this means all of our clients will see the benefits of this acquisition by having a broader range of products to choose from and cost savings, while still having impeccable local service,” said Clegg.

Prior acquisitions by Clegg Insurance include Florida Insurance Partners in Safety Harbor in 2013, Hopf & Hopf, a Tampa-based insurance firm in 2014, and Advanced Insurance Brokerage, an Anna Maria Island insurance brokerage in 2018.

Clegg started the agency from scratch in 2010 and now has offices in Clearwater, Anna Maria Island and Boca Raton, while continuing to look for further opportunities to expand.

Clegg Insurance featured in Florida Business Observer

"Move On Up" By Anita Todd | Contributing Writer – Friday, November 13, 2015

Insurance executive Ryan Clegg took a big gamble in 2010: He ditched a good job at insurance giant Brown & Brown to launch his own firm — even with the economy mired in uncertainty.

Turns out that was the best time for Clegg to make the move.

The company, Clearwater-based Clegg Insurance Group, has experienced consistent growth, posting a 45% increase in net income this year; the firm doesn’t release specific annual sales figures. To accommodate the growth, the company is finalizing the purchase of a nearly 4,000-square-foot building in the Morton Plant district of downtown Clearwater (Read More).

Clegg Insurance Featured on CBS 10 WTSP

Locally owned Clegg Insurance Group celebrated its fourth year in business on Friday.

Back in 2009 Ryan Clegg, a Clearwater native, founded Clegg Insurance Group which is a Clearwater-based firm that provides insurance services throughout the state of Florida.

Clegg decided that even though the economy appeared tough back in 2009, there was no better time to start his own business. He believed he could succeed by providing people premium service while selling them an essential product.

The opening and continued growth of the company was based on the need to provide unparalleled customer service.

“That’s truly what we based this company on,” said 29-year-old Clegg. “We founded this company around the goal of not only delivering on the promises we make, but exceeding the expectations placed upon us.”

For Clegg Insurance, though, it has never been about making a sale.

“We don’t want to just sell you an insurance policy , we want for Clegg Insurance to become your trusted team of advisors and your partner for all of your insurance needs,” Clegg said. “In this world, life is too short to do business with people you don’t know and can’t trust.”
