Erskine Murray Insurance Brokers is acquired by PIB Group

Some exciting news has landed for the team at Erskine Murray, and we are delighted to announce that we have been acquired by PIB Group Limited (‘PIB’). Founded in 2015, PIB is a fast-growing insurance intermediary group aiming to create a leading position in the provision of specialist insurance solutions across the UK market and beyond.

Erskine Murray formed in 2012 as an independent commercial lines broker, with origins that can be traced back to more than 50 years. Today we are proud to be an innovative and forward-thinking business, that puts our clients’ interests at the forefront of everything that we do.

Our decision to become part of a larger group represents an important part of our evolution, which will enable us to meet ambitious plans for the future while continuing to provide the same excellent service to clients.

Tom Bartleet, CEO for Erskine Murray, says: “I’m delighted that Erksine Murray has become part of PIB Group. Over the past few years, we have established a great business that I am immensely proud of, and today marks the next phase in our evolution and success. With PIB’s investment, we look forward to meeting the growing aspirations of our clients and colleagues by building upon our growth, skills and reputation to take our business to the next level.”

Our core lines of business will complement those of PIB which include Corporate and Commercial, specialist SME, High Net Worth and Private Clients, plus value-add services such as Risk Management, Employee Benefits, and an inhouse claims handling service. In addition, our clients can enjoy access to a broad range of specialist products and services provided through PIB.

Brendan McManus, CEO for PIB Group says: “I’d like to give a very warm welcome to everyone at Erskine Murray, which is another fantastic business to be joining PIB Group. This represents a strong strategic fit thanks to a range of complementary attributes including their core lines of business, focus on clients and excellent service, and investment in people. While their geography will see our national footprint expand further, clients of Erskine Murray can continue to enjoy a professional, local and friendly service while accessing extra capability from the broader Group offering. I look forward to seeing the business flourish further with PIB’s investment and support.”

We’re looking forward to getting to know our new colleagues at PIB, and the opportunity to collaborate for the benefit of our clients.
