Northern Ireland broker Willis Insurance and Risk Management (Willis IRM) has bought Kennett Insurance Brokers based in Hessle, East Yorkshire and McCausland, Light and Rankin based in Belfast.

Kennett Insurance was set up in 1975 and employs 12 staff at its office in Hessle, just outside Hull.

Willis IRM’s regional presence in Reading is headed up Luigi Maggio who will become a director in Kennett working with current MD Nick Wride. 

McCausland Light and Rankin (MLR) was established in 1993 by Gary McCausland and employs more than 20 staff.

Richard Willis, managing director, Willis IRM said: “Our ambition to be the leading insurance broker in Northern Ireland is reinforced with the addition of the McCausland, Light and Rankin into our group.

“This will increase our footprint and our leverage in the Northern Ireland market.

“The acquisition of Kennett Insurance Brokers enables us to build our GB presence further. It will supplement our Reading office and give us a presence in the North. Both acquisitions are part of our strategic growth plan and I am delighted that they have come to fruition.”
