AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- All Web Leads, a leading online sales lead generation company supplying the US insurance industry, announced today that it had acquired InsuranceLeads.com, a leading provider of online leads to insurance agents, brokers and carriers. To finance the acquisition All Web Leads has teamed with Great Hill Partners, a Boston-based private equity firm with over $2.5 billion under management, who have made a majority investment in the combined entity. All Web Leads' current executive team will lead the combined company, which will continue to be based in Austin, Texas. Morgan Keegan served as an advisor to All Web Leads, Inc for the transaction.

"We are very excited to welcome the InsuranceLeads.com team to the All Web Leads family," said Bill Daniel, CEO of All Web Leads, Inc.
