Cross Insurance has acquired a Boston-area insurer, continuing a streak of recent purchases to expand the company’s reach throughout New England.

Cross announced the purchase of Wellesley, Massachusetts-based Corcoran & Havlin Insurance Group on Monday. It did not reveal financial details of the deal.

The previous owners of Corcoran & Havlin, Jack Keefe and George Doherty, will continue to lead the office in Wellesley and two satellite offices in Medfield and Duxbury. The company has about 55 employees.

Cross has expanded its reach in New England in recent years, striking similar deals with insurance agencies in Connecticut, Rhode Island and elsewhere in Maine and Massachusetts in 2014.

In January, the company announced hiring a prior vice president at the Massachusetts-based Global Insurance, Paul Cellucci, to lead its expansion into southern New England.

The company also boosted its marketing efforts with naming rights deals for the former Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland — now the Cross Insurance Arena — and the Cross Insurance Pavilion and Business Center that’s slated to open at Gillette Stadium this summer.

In the announcement Monday, Cross said it now has more than 700 employees at offices in Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Florida.
