BW Forsyth Partners backs WalkerHughes Insurance

WalkerHughes Insurance has secured a strategic minority investment from BW Forsyth Partners.

While WalkerHughes remains primarily locally owned with Benjamin Schoettmer, its Founder and CEO, maintaining the majority stake, the investment will allow the firm to further its ambitions in talent acquisition, technological advancement, and growth through both mergers and organic initiatives.

Both entities have a mutual vision of deepening their customer and community ties while extending their geographic reach.

Hailing from St. Louis, Forsyth Partners, an investment offshoot of Barry-Wehmiller, emphasizes a people-first approach and combines Barry-Wehmiller’s legacy of value addition and people-driven ethos with expertise in elevating companies. This collaboration ensures a lasting investment focus supported by a persistent capital foundation.

WalkerHughes Insurance is an independent insurance agency with multiple offices across Indiana. They offer customized insurance products and programs tailored to individual business needs.
