From October 2020 the PIB Insurance Brokers family will grow and it will be even easier to do business with us, along with more expertise, specialist products and exceptional service to enjoy.
At the moment, we work closely with a number of businesses within the wider PIB Group (‘PIB’), however they’ll soon be changing their name to trade with us as PIB Insurance Brokers. As part of this change, we will soon be unveiling a refreshed look and a new website, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled!
The businesses involved are Cooke & Mason, DE Ford, Franklands, Lorica, PIB Private Clients, PIB SME Insurance, QPI, Wilby (including Websters Insurance Brokers), WW Group, BKG West and Cobra Insurance Brokers. Together, we all currently sit within PIB’s Specialty division which is home to the Group’s specialist commercial lines, supported by in-house claims handling and a risk management team. We’re looking forward to the change as the next step in our evolution, and things will become a lot easier when we all become known simply as PIB Insurance Brokers.
“Simplifying the structure of our specialist businesses is an important step that will further strengthen the PIB Insurance Brokers brand and reinforce how we place collaboration at the heart of everything we do. All our businesses within the Specialty division have made an important contribution to our success today, and bringing them together to trade as one is a natural phase in our evolution so that clients can enjoy easier access to our extensive offering and expertise,” says Brendan McManus, CEO for PIB Group.
The move will also complement the services offered by our colleagues in PIB Risk Management and PIB Employee Benefits, which represent even more of a unified approach, and our strength as a collective.
Around 500 people across thirty branches nationally form PIB’s Specialty division. All our existing teams and contact details will stay the same, with experts remaining dedicated to providing a highly professional and friendly service, while retaining a strong local presence that our clients have come to enjoy.
“It’s exciting to see our Specialty division continue to evolve and grow in brand strength. We are proud of the heritage and achievements that have made our businesses successful today, and whose values are shared and aligned to PIB Insurance Brokers which will be our dominant brand. We will continue to put our clients at the forefront of our thinking in everything we do, maintaining local professional service, while celebrating and building on our specialisms as well as developing and growing our people,” says Steve Redgwell, CEO for PIB’s Specialty Division.
