Marsh & McLennan Agency LLC (MMA), a subsidiary of Marsh, today announced it has acquired St. Louis, Missouri-based J.W. Terrill, one of the largest independent agencies in the Midwest. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

With this acquisition, MMA expands its growing national footprint into Missouri and reinforces its commitment to building one of the nation’s preeminent insurance agencies serving the risk management and employee benefits needs of middle market companies.

Founded in 1972, J.W.

“With its strong leadership, commitment to client service, and blend of risk management and employee benefits service offerings, J.W. Terrill is a perfect fit to join MMA,” said David Eslick, MMA chairman and CEO. “I welcome Andy Thome and his team and look forward to expanding our presence in the Midwest.”

Mr. Thome added: “As we enter the next chapter in J.W.
