AssuredPartners and GMIB.ie acquire Fitzgerald Insurances
AssuredPartners and Gallivan Murphy Insurance Brokers have acquired Cork firm Fitzgerald Insurances.
Established by Don Fitzgerald in 1968 and run today by Kieran and Marion Fitzgerald, the Kanturk brokerage provides general insurance services to over 7,000 commercial and personal customers around the Munster area.
Since acquiring GMIB in June 2022, AssuredPartners has also taken on O’Callaghan Insurances, O’Donovan Insurances and Sayers Insurances.
Following this most recent acquisition, total annual gross written premium at AssuredPartners Ireland will exceed €125m and the firm expects to add a further €75m over the next year through a combination of organic and acquisition growth, aiming for close to 4% market share.
“We are delighted to welcome Kieran, Marion and their team on board,” said David Heathfield, CEO of AssuredPartners UK & Ireland. “They bring decades of exceptional experience and further enhance our market strength in the South and Mid-West in particular.
"We remain active buyers of family brokerages building on their local knowledge and supporting them in driving sustainable growth within a very supportive structure.”
Marion and Kieran Fitzgerald added: “We are both very pleased to join the GMIB.ie family from our base here in Kanturk. We expect business as usual but with even greater access to a deeper pool of expertise and product choices for our customers.”
