Acrisure, Russell Wilson and Ciara form Evolution Advisors
Insurance broker Acrisure announced the formation of Evolution Advisors, a new joint venture to focus on the insurance needs of minority-owned businesses and diverse communities across the United States. Super Bowl champion quarterback of the National Football League’s Seattle Seahawks, Russell Wilson and his wife, Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter, Ciara, are founding partners and equity owners in the joint venture and will help guide the business and its community impact strategies.
“Acrisure is committed to making a difference and we look forward to working alongside Russell and Ciara. Our interests could not be more aligned. Acrisure’s deep insurance, financial and technology expertise will help to address the risk problems faced by minority-owned businesses and diverse communities across the U.S. Along with their broad cultural impact, we’re proud to align with Russell and Ciara’s belief that everyone should have the opportunity to grow in a healthy and positive way. Insurance and financial services are an essential piece of personal and commercial success, so we’re excited to bring bold strategies to a broad and diverse client base.” – Greg Williams, Co-Founder, President and CEO of Acrisure.
“We’re excited to partner with Acrisure on this venture. We believe in the power of ownership and our hope is that through this partnership, we can help create a path for diverse communities to build up their own businesses and infrastructure. It’s always been important for us to give back to the community and now, more so than ever, we recognize that minority-owned businesses need to be afforded more opportunities.” – Russell Wilson and Ciara.
The joint venture will immediately focus on providing greater access and more effectively distributing insurance products to minority-owned enterprises, including Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) certified businesses. Additionally, the joint venture will also seek to make a specific impact through community-focused efforts, building on Wilson and Ciara’s work through their Why Not You Foundation, and Acrisure’s philanthropic focus on children’s health.
