Staff Writer | February 10, 2014

Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance announces it has signed an agreement to purchase the assets of MyAssist Inc., a live-agent personal-assistance and telematics service provider. John Noel, founder, chairman and CEO of Noel Group, will continue to head the MyAssist operations and focus on growing its business globally.

"MyAssist, with its record of innovative and outstanding service, fits extremely well with Berkshire Hathaway," says Peter Eastwood, president of Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance. “Its capabilities complement our existing positions in insurance and customer service, and will help us extend our brand and create new business opportunities.”

“We are honored to be part of the world-class group of companies that is Berkshire Hathaway.  This opportunity allows us to grow our businesses and enhance the high-quality experience currently enjoyed by MyAssist customers,” says Noel.

"We are approaching potential acquisitions strategically and thoughtfully as we build our business for the long term,” says Eastwood. “We believe MyAssist’s list of customers speaks volumes about the appeal of its products and the quality of its services.”

Corporate customers of MyAssist include Ford Motor Company, Mercedes-Benz USA, and Verizon Telematics.
