Knight Barry Acquires Company, Opens New Offices

November 19, 2013

Set to mark 160 years in business, Wisconsin-based Knight Barry Title Group continues to expand its geographic footprint.

The company acquired Sawyer County Abstract in Hayward, Wis., giving Knight Barry a presence in the northwest portion of the state. Renee Donaghue will manage the office and seek opportunities for expansion in neighboring areas.

Meanwhile, Knight Barry opened new offices in Wausau and Minocqua, Wis. Pat Hugunin will manage both offices. Craig Haskins, Knight Barry’s chief operating officer, said “this is an important area of the state for us and we're actively seeking other opportunities in that neck of the woods.”

Additionally, Knight Barry opened its fifth office in the Madison, Wis., market. The company now has 31 offices in four states, including Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois and Michigan. In 2014, Haskins said Knight Barry plans to open additional offices in Minnesota and Michigan, with potential expansion into Florida.
