January 15, 2019

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 15, 2019--ONI Risk Partners (“ONI”), one of the Midwest’s largest insurance brokers, will acquire MBAH Insurance (“MBAH”), a Lafayette, Indiana-based insurance agency that has been in operation for more than 90 years. The MBAH team joins ONI’s 300-plus insurance professionals serving business and individual clients throughout Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky. The MBAH Lafayette location will serve as ONI’s fifth Indiana regional office in addition to its offices in Indianapolis, Ft. Wayne, Terre Haute, and Evansville.

“MBAH has been the leading independent insurance agency in the greater Lafayette area for nearly a century and we’re thrilled to welcome their talented team to ONI,” said Jim Hynes, president of ONI Risk Partners. “Both companies’ cultures embody our guiding principal – to focus on the individual first and build trusted client relationships – and we’re eager to extend our national resources and better serve the Midwest region.”

“Since the beginning, MBAH’s primary goal has been to provide our clients and communities with the best solutions possible, and I believe that ONI will help us continue to achieve this level of service and uphold our values,” said John Willis, president and CEO of MBAH. Executive Vice President Matt Metzger added, “We’re proud to join the team and are confident that ONI’s diversified breadth of resources will only help us better serve our clients, who are our top priority on all lines of business.” Metzger will serve as the Market Executive for the new regional office.

MBAH offers commercial and personal insurance, as well as employee benefits services throughout Indiana. Since the 1920s, MBAH has grown by providing quality solutions delivered by knowledgeable and experienced staff. In 2007, the agency expanded by acquiring Heiny Insurance, which opened up access to the central Indiana market and streamlined processes for thousands of customers.

Through this new partnership with ONI, MBAH joins the national platform of Prime Risk Partners (“PRP”). PRP is among the industry’s fastest-growing firms, building a national platform in partnership with leading regional agencies like ONI that seek expansion through local management and knowledge with the resources of a dynamic national organization. PRP was recently ranked number 40 in the most recent Business Insurance “Top 100 Business Brokers” issue, and received a “Georgia Fast 40” Award from the Association for Corporate Growth Atlanta.
