The Norton Agency acquires Paragon Insurance

By Staff
GAINESVILLE - Norton Insurance Agency, an 86-year-old Hall County based financial services firm, has announced the acquisition of Paragon Insurance located at 2945 Horizon Park Drive, Suite C, Suwanee, GA.

Paragon was owned and operated by Mike Garguillo as Vice President. Garguillo will remain with the company in management, ownership and production capacities. Norton Insurance represents a carefully selected group of national and regional insurance companies allowing greater choice and flexibility to the markets that Paragon now serves.

"The acquisition of Paragon and its team builds on our firm's strong foundation enabling us to serve communities like Gwinnett County with our powerful array of insurance products," said Bob Norton, President of The Norton Agency Insurance.

"In addition, Paragon has developed a strong expertise in the Environmental Insurance field, and we plan to expand our focus to this area in the future."

This is the sixth acquisition in the last 21 months by Norton Insurance as it continues its growth as the largest insurance agency in North Georgia. The company grew it revenues by 23% in 2013 through acquisitions and organic growth.

The Norton Agency was started in 1928 by W.L. Norton, Sr. and today is Georgia's largest Independent Insurance and Real Estate Company. Norton's insurance division now has a network of 21 affiliates and offices located in Cobb, Crisp, Dawson, DeKalb, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Hall, Habersham, Lumpkin, White and Whitfield Counties, as well as South Carolina and Florida. Norton continues to coordinate all of its efforts centrally at its headquarters located at 434 Green St, NE, Gainesville GA.
