Marsh & McLennan Agency LLC acquired VISICOR, a full-service employee benefits brokerage and consulting firm based in Friendswood, Texas, expanding the company’s employee benefits capabilities in the Southwestern U.S.

“I’m delighted to welcome VISICOR’s talented and experienced employee benefit specialists to MMA,” said Anthony Gruppo, CEO for Marsh & McLennan Agency’s Southwest region. “The addition enables us to offer greater resources and a broader platform to serve the employee benefit needs of our clients throughout Texas and the Southwest.”
