AIMCOR Consolidated LLC (“ICON”), a joint venture between AIMCOR Group, LLC (“AIMCOR”) and AmeriLife Group, LLC (“AmeriLife”), announced today that it has acquired Hansen Brokerage Services (“HBS”). Per the agreement, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“With the pace that our industry is changing, we couldn’t be more excited about our choice to align with ICON and become their newest affiliate as we look to the next growth chapter for Hansen Brokerage,” said Scott Hansen, president of Hansen Brokerage Services. “For the past 25 years, we’ve focused on building relationships and finding ways that we can offer enhanced value to our agents and producers that have entrusted us. As an ICON affiliate, we’re now positioned to deliver this in a more meaningful way and offer an expanded product suite, new technology to our producers, and accelerate our efforts of expanding into distribution channels that will help drive our business growth into the future!”
Headquartered in Grand Rapids, Mich., HBS is a full-service brokerage general agency (“BGA”) that was founded in 1996 by Scott and his late father David C. Hansen. In 2000, Scott Hansen became the sole owner of the agency and has continued to drive the company’s growth over the past 25-plus years.

Now, as part of ICON, HBS becomes part of AmeriLife's best-in-class distribution network to help further its growth and expand its reach while they continue to benefit from the resources and distribution access it's enjoyed as an AIMCOR member. With the closing of this deal, Scott Hansen becomes a principal in ICON and will continue to work alongside his existing leadership team to oversee his business.
“Scott’s passion for our industry coupled with his desire to create a larger impact within the BGA community makes ICON the ideal partner for HBS in its next chapter. Scott and his team are true professionals and quality additions to ICON as we enter 2023 and continue our focus of executing upon our two core strategic initiatives – organic growth and expanding distribution – over the course of the coming year,” commented Marc Verbos, president of ICON.
“Hansen Brokerage Services is in a place to create even more growth within the market in a way that gives agents the resources they need for success.
