Hub International announced Sept. 5 that it has acquired GMS Insurance Inc. of Mississauga, Ontario. The move is the latest in a series of acquisitions by Hub in the employee benefits space.

GMS Insurance's Mississauga operations is an independent employee benefits consulting firm. Last year, Hub acquired the affiliated Kitchener, Ontario operations of GMS Insurance.

"We're excited to unify GMS Insurance under Hub, which demonstrates our commitment to the market as we continue to strengthen our employee benefits capabilities in Canada," said Gregory Belton, Executive Chairman of Hub International Ontario Limited (Hub Ontario). "Together we look forward to offering clients more choices and value."

The GMS Insurance team will join Hub Ontario and report to Belton.
