Stahlka Agency, Orchard Park, Acquires Prahovic Agency

ORCHARD PARK, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 16, 2015) - Stahlka Agency Inc., an independent insurance agency and member of the EMS Group based in Williamsville, has acquired the Prahovic Agency. Stephen Prahovic, former principal of the Prahovic Agency, has joined Stahlka Agency at its Southtowns office in Orchard Park.

The Prahovic Agency provided a wide range of small-business and personal insurance to the Southtowns area for many years.

"The acquisition of the Prahovic Agency in Lake View continues our strategy to aggressively seek out growth opportunities and expand our presence in the Southtowns," said Mark Stahlka, president of Stahlka Agency, a member of the EMS Group. "Steve has built a strong following in the Hamburg and Orchard Park area, and we look forward to having him on our team and serving the clients he is bringing with him."

"Joining forces with the Stahlka Agency made tremendous sense for me and my customers," Prahovic said. "There's a great team in their Orchard Park office and I know their staff will not only take great care of my current customers but also allow me to work more on new-business development."

Prahovic Agency clients will be able to take advantage of a wider range of insurance companies and products. "This acquisition continues to emphasize that the Stahlka Agency supports local business owners and individuals while advising them on their insurance needs for the everyday risks they face in their world," Stahlka said.

North Bridge Advisors, a consultancy in Concord, Mass., advised the Stahlka Agency. "We're seeing more mergers like this regionally and nationally," said the firm's managing director, Jerry Vigneron. "Larger organizations can provide the services, products and technology needed to attract and retain customers in a highly competitive market."
