There are very few M&A advisors with the necessary experience to guide all parties through the complex process of an agency sale and acquisition. Sunset Insurance Group was created to fill this gap. The firm does this by maintaining a network of experienced advisors throughout the country.
Sunset Insurance Group was founded by Jeremy Hovater who currently serves as President of the firm. Mr. Hovater has experience with many different aspects of the insurance industry. He oversaw the Underwriting, Premium Audit, and Loss Control departments for an insurance company whose business model was centered on the needs of small main street businesses and had over 9,000 agency appointments. Mr. Hovater also has extensive experience in marine insurance where he focused on USL&H, Jones Act, hull, and cargo.
Prior to his insurance career Jeremy Hovater worked as a Credit Specialist and Economic Analyst for the Federal Reserve Bank. This provided him with valuable insight on the many different ways the Federal Reserve and Federal Open Market Committee’s (FOMC) actions impact the economy and ultimately insurance agency owners.
Mr. Hovater has earned the distinction of Accredited Business Intermediary (ABI) and Accredited Business Valuation Analyst (ABVA) from the American Business Brokers Association by completing its advanced business broker educational curriculum. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Finance and Economics from the University of North Alabama as well as an MBA and a Masters in Personal Financial Planning from Georgia State University.
