Risk Strategies Acquires Meeker Sharkey & Hurley


The full-service insurance and employee benefits agency provides risk management and insurance services across all lines of business. It specialises in non-profit organisations, financial institutions, manufacturing and distribution, public entities, higher education, and high-net worth individuals.

“Adding Meeker Sharkey & Hurley to the Risk Strategies family further strengthens our specialist approach to risk and New Jersey-based operations for clients and prospects,” said John Scroope, national director of retail operations for Risk Strategies. 

“They bring an impressive legacy of service and strong community ties, and we look forward to tapping into their expertise and unique specialisation in growing segments.”

The business is Risk Strategies’ third New Jersey-based acquisition this quarter. In November, it acquired Springfield-based KRA Insurance Agency, and in October, Corrigan Johnston Risk Advisors based in Basking Ridge.

Meeker Sharkey & Hurley’s roots can be traced back to 1864 to the W.H. Meeker Company. In 2014, the firm merged with the James F. Hurley Insurance Agency and became known as Meeker Sharkey & Hurley.

“We are a specialty brokerage firm bringing together highly experienced and knowledgeable professionals to focus on industry specialisation and superior client service,” said Tom Sharkey Jr, the firm’s president. “This is an exciting time for us as we join a top national broker to enhance our insurance offerings to better serve our clients and local communities.”
