Jamieson Corporate Finance US, LLC (“Jamieson”) is pleased to announce that it has advised Matt Gardner, CEO and 30-year insurance distribution industry veteran, and his team at Patriot Growth Insurance Services, LLC (“Patriot”).
Gardner, with financial backing from growth equity investor Summit Partners, formed the Patriot platform as a collaborative, growth-orientated model allowing partner agencies to operate autonomously while benefiting from the combined resources, strength and experience of a national organization.
Patriot’s initial platform creates a new national retail insurance agency in collaboration with 17 independent insurance agencies and with TRUE Network Advisors (“TRUE”). With 21 offices in 7 states, Patriot is a top-60 U.S. privately held insurance agency that also ranks in the top-20 amongst privately held employee benefits agencies.
“We are building the company that I’ve always wanted to work for. Patriot is committed to partnering with like-minded entrepreneurs that share our vision of creating a world-class agency focused on operational excellence and a relentless pursuit of growth – both organically and through thoughtful, highly selective acquisitions.”

In addition to Matt Gardner, Patriot’s national leadership team includes Chief Acquisition Officer Jay Grevers and Senior Vice President of Mergers & Acquisitions Steve Carroll, both of whom bring a unique blend of transactional and operational experience in the insurance industry.
