Chicago-based Jacobson Group, which provides recruits to the insurance industry, and ejsSearch – the London-based insurance executive search firm specializing in assignments in London and broader European and international markets — have completed their merger agreement.

The two firms said they have been collaborating since 2008 to deliver “an integrated, cross-border solution.”
