MidCap Advisors’ client Pavese-McCormick Acquired by King Insurance Partners
Princeton, New Jersey area agency Pavese-McCormick retains leadership and staff in strategic acquisition by fast-growing private equity-backed brokerage
NEW YORK, July 2023 – The Pavese-McCormick Insurance Agency (PMA), a third-generation multi-line property and casualty agency based in Monmouth Junction, New Jersey, has been acquired by King Insurance, a Gainesville, Florida-based insurance brokerage that provides property and casualty, liability and employee benefit solutions. Currently, in its 90th year of operation, PMA provides risk management solutions to commercial and personal lines customers. MidCap Advisors, LLC (MidCap) served as the exclusive financial advisor to PMA.
“While a regional agency, PMA has a notably sophisticated understanding of the broad market opportunities in the insurance sector,” said John D. Poppe, Jr., Partner of MidCap Advisors, who along with MidCap Associate Brandon J. Bisack, advised PMA in the transaction. “We assisted PMA in analyzing several acquisition scenarios. This acquisition by King met the expansion objectives of the PMA leadership while enabling King to acquire a legacy agency with talented staff in a highly desirable geographic corridor.”
“It’s an understatement to say it’s a difficult decision to sell an agency that has been in business for nearly a century,” said Ray Pavese, owner and CEO of PMA. “We turned to MidCap Advisors to help us assess the opportunity. MidCap has an excellent reputation as an advisor to the insurance industry and an extraordinary grasp of the bottom-line objectives of independent agencies.”
Michael McCormick, owner and CFO of PMA, continued, “Our Midcap team was extremely experienced and insightful on how to position us in the marketplace. They continually looked out for our interests throughout the process. After a thorough analysis of all data by our MidCap team, we decided with complete confidence that PMA and King working together meets our aligned business interests.”
