White said Assured Partners will keep the same banking, accounting and legal services moving forward. They won't micro manage from a central out-of-state location, she added.
White added the firm was not looking for a buyer.
"We did our own due diligence and found Assured Partners to be extremely reputable, successful and seemingly a very good fit for us," White said. "Reputation is everything in our business."
With Assured Partners financial backing, Commercial Insurance hopes to grow through acquisition.
"Our firm believes if we can continue to be cutting edge in our business, while employing our current associates, collaborating effectively on such initiatives as claims, loss control, risk management and healthcare reform, we can run a more efficient and informed operation," White said.
Commercial Insurance Services has offices in Charleston and Morgantown.
"We are really happy to continue to build here in Charleston and know that our employees have a future here," White said. "We expect to be here for another 82 years."
