DEERFIELD, IL (September 21, 2017) — Alera Group, a leading national employee benefits, property/casualty, risk management and wealth management firm, has acquired West Park Insurance and Risk Management of Allentown, Pennsylvania. The acquisition became effective September 1, 2017.

“We are excited to welcome Gene Nosovitch and the West Park team to Alera Group,” said Alan Levitz, CEO of Alera Group. “Their unique specialties, particularly in the area of environmental insurance and malpractice coverage, bring new resources to Alera Group clients across the United States. The collaborative culture of West Park makes them an excellent fit as an Alera Group company.”

Formed in 2002, West Park Insurance and Risk Management provides clients with excellent service, emphasizing business, medical malpractice, senior healthcare and environmental liability insurance. As experts in the areas of environmental claims and subrogation, West Park Insurance has insight, experience and expertise into the industry that allows for client protection through multi-disciplinary services and solutions.

West Park Insurance will join Alera Group through its local firm HMK Insurance, an Alera Group company in Bethlehem, PA. Clients will not experience any disruption in service as the West Park Insurance team continues in their roles with the added resources of Alera Group.

The West Park Insurance acquisition comes on the heels of Alera Group’s acquisition of Lebanon, Pennsylvania-based Zinn Insurance earlier this month.
