Stronger Together

HAWK Advisers was created from the union between Commercial Insurance Services, Inc., and Carlton Wright Insurance Agency, Inc.  Together, they share a history that spans more than 7 decades and 2 generations of family ownership.  Hamilton and Wright Keystone (HAWK), is committed to a superior customer experience for individuals, families and businesses that value meaningful risk management and insurance solutions.

HAWK Customers now have access to the most extensive portfolio of competitive insurance coverage and employee benefit packages available.  Our network of strategic partnerships and dedicated risk management professionals are redefining the insurance industry standard.  Investments in technology, safety management, regulatory compliance and third-party claim administration are benefiting our clients by reducing their overall cost of risk.

As an independent agency, HAWK has made a conscious choice to stand beside our client partners unrestricted by the confines of a captive carrier or wholesale model.  Relationships are not dictated by how much you pay for insurance, your credit score, where you went to school, or the zip-code you live in.  We make it our business to protect yours.

HAWK Advisers is an empowered team of individuals with distinct skills and a passion for helping others.  Independence is what inspires us to be leaders, to ask questions and solve problems. We are breaking barriers and we invite you to jump on board.

Come see us, or drop us note if you would like to start a conversation.


Our mission is to be the most responsive and engaging independent agency provider of risk management and insurance solutions.

Take Ownership:

Our reputation is our brand and it is our responsibility to protect it.  We each take an active role in shaping our business, peers and community.
