New York, September 5, 2019 – Marsh, the world’s leading insurance broker and risk adviser, and Construction Risk Partners (CRP), a leading specialty broker dedicated to the US construction industry, today announced that they have entered an agreement whereby CRP management will buy back the company’s stock from JLT Specialty USA. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Effective immediately, CRP will operate as an independent construction risk and surety specialty insurance broker and maintain its headquarters in Branchburg, New Jersey.

“At CRP, our clients have a trusted partner with a reputation for unparalleled expertise and insight. We have great respect for JLT and Marsh, but we look forward to building an exciting future as an independent specialty construction broker,” said Joe Charczenko, Partner.
