Terms of the deal were not disclosed but Chicago-based RSG said in a statement it will buy certain assets of ARC Specialty Brokerage L.L.C., Jericho, New York-based ARC’s property/casualty division.

Led by Mr. Vollaro, five other ARC staff will join RSG’s wholesale brokerage, R-T Specialty L.L.C. in Melville, New York.
