The Clear Group, recent acquisitions of which include Profile Risk Solutions and Heath Crawford & Foster Holdings, has made another swoop – this time snapping up Cirencester-based brokerage Bluestone Insurance Services to expand Clear’s footprint in the South West.
In a release, Clear cited the chartered insurance broker’s expertise in areas like property owners, engineering, construction, fleet, and commercial motor. It was noted that Bluestone handles more than £5.4 million in gross written premium.
“We’re delighted that Pauline, Dan, and their team are joining forces with The Clear Group,” commented group chief executive Mike Edgeley. “Bluestone is a great business, which will play an important part in expanding our footprint across the South West where we are actively seeking to attract other brokers.”
Including directors Pauline Rushton and Dan Ogden, a total of nine new colleagues from Bluestone have joined the wider business.
“Clear resonated with Bluestone’s understanding, since it is important to ensure that our customers continue to benefit from the same excellent service; similarly that our staff are supported and invested in to maintain those high standards,” said Rushton.
