San Francisco, California (August 13, 2012) – ABD Insurance and Financial Services, a collective with more than 75 years of history in the insurance industry, announces its successful launch in Northern California.

“The components of our group have been coming together over the past several years and now we’re all under the ABD brand” said Kurt de Grosz, President and Co-Chairman. “We’re offering a creative, boutique approach to insurance and financial services. And at ABD, we have assembled a team of professionals who see clients as people, not just policies.”

ABD has signed over 200 new clients to its practice in the past few weeks. “Our clients appreciate and recognize our commitment to customer service and our intention to be known as the best in the insurance industry,” stated Brian Hetherington, CEO and Co-Chairman.

ABD was formed through a merger of several groups, stemming from Insurance Leadership Network, Inc.’s (ILN) acquisition last year of JLV Insurance Services, Advanced Professionals Insurance and Benefit Solutions, which formed the foundation for the new company.

Andrea Trudeau, Executive Vice President (and founder of Advanced Professionals Insurance), commented, “With our new brand and the expanded team, our existing customers will still receive the same exceptional levels of service and personal touch they are accustomed to, while also benefitting from additional underwriting, compliance, and administrative solutions.”

Our new team and platform allows us to be even more responsive to customer expectations, which is our focus everyday”, said Stephen Leveroni, Executive Vice President, General Business Practice Leader (and founder of JLV Insurance Services).
