Higginbotham adds another Fort Worth agency

Higginbotham and Kilpatrick Insurance announced today that the two independent insurance brokers have merged in Fort Worth. Kilpatrick Insurance will relocate from 2410 Montgomery Street three miles east to Higginbotham’s two downtown offices and take Higginbotham’s name.

This is Higginbotham’s sixth merger this year and its second in Fort Worth, home to the firm since opening in 1948. In August, Higginbotham added Fort Worth’s Dike Co. to its growing roster.

Kilpatrick Insurance adds 15 professionals to Higginbotham’s commercial and personal property/casualty division.

“Much of our expansion efforts have been put into widening our footprint, but there’s still room to grow in Fort Worth because DFW keeps topping the charts of growing metropolitan areas,” said Higginbotham President/CEO Rusty Reid. “We’ve built a business model that gives customers a single source for all their insurance, risk management and administration services, and partnering with agencies like Kilpatrick gives us the manpower to keep pace with the growing population so we continue fulfilling that model.”

Kim Kilpatrick-Terrell, Kilpatrick Insurance president and granddaughter of the agency’s founder, said, “Uniting with Higginbotham provides more value to our clients because we can offer additional services beyond insurance coverage that are outside the threshold of smaller agencies. We’re proud to become part of the largest broker in Fort Worth and plan to grow alongside them.”

Kilpatrick Insurance is slated to move in December 2017. www.higginbotham.net
