Industry Leader Robert J. Hilb Joins The Plexus Groupe

The Plexus Groupe is pleased to announce the addition of Robert J. Hilb as Chief Partnership Officer. In this role, Hilb will be focusing on acquisitions and strategic partnerships to grow The Plexus Groupe’s brand and national footprint.

Founder and CEO Walter R. Fawcett, III commented, “I am excited to have Bob on the Plexus team. His past mergers and acquisitions experience and business acumen will be greatly valued in our organization. He will be an incredible asset to The Plexus Groupe.”

Along with a rich family history in the insurance space, Hilb brings over 30 years of industry experience. Prior to joining The Plexus Groupe, Hilb founded the Hilb Group and was responsible for over 40 acquisitions.

Hilb commented, “When considering my next step in the industry, two things were crystal clear to me: First, I wanted to work on a team with people I like and trust and where I could add value. Second, it was essential that I associate with a privately held broker without any outside interests. In Plexus, I have all those things and more. I have great admiration for what Walt and his team have built and am very excited to help Plexus achieve their growth goals.”
