Tasker Insurance Group (TIG) are pleased to announce the merger of their retail brokers Maestro Insurance Services Ltd (MIS) and Tasker Southeast Ltd (TSE) on the 29th March 2018 to form Tasker Insurance Brokers Ltd (TIB). Moving forward, TIB will consist of several retail broker hubs in various locations around the UK.
TIB provides commercial lines insurance along with specialist niche brands The Guesthouse Insurer and Pro Publican. TIB has also recently expanded into the Chauffeur and Executive Hire market with the appointment of Samuel McCarthy earlier this month.
TIG acquired Manchester based MIS in 2012 with a strong proposition in Manufacturing, Warehousing, Construction & Motor Fleet. The team has recently expanded the telesales team in support of growth.
Ann Bowyer, Acting Managing Director of our regional retail business TIB, commented “Both offices have great strengths in different areas of the market. In the last 3 months we have streamlined our approach with the appointment of Sales Manager Chris Williams, who has been working with the teams across our offices as we look to expand in the market.”
Robert Organ, CEO of TIG concluded by saying “The merger of our two specialist retail brokers helps to strengthen our place in the market along with our proposition moving forward. Whilst we are in talks with firms who are interested in joining us to become our hub offices elsewhere in the country, we’d welcome the chance to have those conversations with others.”
The merger of the two businesses will come into effect on the 29th March 2018.
