Confie Seguros has built a national portfolio of regional auto insurance brokerages, and was rated among the top 10 in revenues in Insurance Journal's top 100 list of insurance agencies.

The company has acquired 20 agencies over the past 12 months -- 10 of them this year, according to Mordy Rothberg, president of Confie Seguros. "These agencies will benefit from being an integral part of our larger company and their customers will ultimately benefit from a broader array of complementary products," he said.

Confie Seguros, based in New York, was established in 2008 in partnership by Genstar Capital, a leading private equity investment firm focused on accelerating growth and profitability of portfolio companies, and insurance industry executives.
