Bluefin is pleased to announce that it has acquired Cheshire based broker Bennett Fozzard for an undisclosed sum. The acquisition, completed on 6th May 2015 is Bluefin’s first of 2015.

Originally formed in 1984, Bennett Fozzard is a highly regarded business offering insurance solutions across commercial and personal lines. Bennett Fozzard was a member of Bluefin Network. The founders and all staff are being retained.

Mike Bennett, Managing Partner of Bennett Fozzard said: “We know that Bluefin is a well-respected broker in the market having been part of the Bluefin Network for many years now it was a logical decision to further integrate our business with Bluefin as we know the senior management team already. It marks a new chapter for us and is an exciting opportunity for our business, staff and clients. We look forward to joining Bluefin and working with them to develop the business further.”

Robert Organ, Chief Executive officer of Bluefin, commented: “We’re delighted to have completed the purchase of Bennett Fozzard. Mike and the team at Bennetts have known Bluefin for a long time and we look forward to welcoming them into our Stockport office. Its proximity to our existing Stockport location and its split of commercial and personal lines makes Bennett Fozzard another ideal match that is very much in line with our acquisitions strategy.” 

Robert Organ, also added: “It’s great to be announcing another successful acquisition. We’re continuing to build on our success from last year and we’re still in talks, at varying levels, with a number of other brokers. However we’d always like to be speaking to more! We are a great home for brokers and teams alike as we have a proven track record of looking after our people and clients throughout the integration process”
