PIB Insurance Brokers (PIB) is pleased to welcome the latest acquisition made by PIB Group.

Simply Insurance Services Ltd has joined the growing family of specialist businesses, in a move that further strengthens PIB’s Motor Trade Practice Group offering to its clients in the automotive sector.

Darren Leader, Director for Simply Insurance commented: “This is a very exciting time for Simply Insurance as we become part of a larger group through PIB Group, which offers a strong cultural fit and opportunities for growth. Through PIB our customers can choose from a broader range of products and services while receiving the same high levels of service they are accustomed to. At the same time our people can continue developing through extensive learning resources and career options available. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our fantastic team and clients who have contributed to our success now and into the future.”

PIB Insurance Brokers is part of PIB Group and home to its specialist commercial lines brokers, supported by inhouse claims handling and a risk management.

Ross Barnitt, Regional Development Director, at PIB Insurance Brokers said: “We are delighted to welcome Simply Insurance who have joined PIB Group and will complete our motor offering.  Our Motor Trade Practice Group comprises experts from across the business – from PIB Insurance Brokers, PIB Risk Management and Cooper Solutions – working together to support the automotive industry through providing tailored solutions.  The expertise and knowledge of the team will further enhance our offering to our clients, delivering key sector insight, helping manage existing and emerging risks, and to improving profitability.”

The 40 strong team provides specialist solutions for around 8000 clients nationally via telephone.  This is PIB’s 42nd acquisition to date, and seventh of 2021. More work is happening behind the scenes to secure several more transactions for further expansion in the UK and overseas.
