The County Group acquires NMJ Insurance

NMJ Insurance Brokers Limited is a £7.5m GWP broker with 4 main sites in Glossop, Scunthorpe, Belper and Bakewell.

The County Group are pleased to announce that we have acquired NMJ Insurance Brokers on the 2nd October 2017.

The business was founded in April 2009 by the Executive Directors Nick Potts and Mike Hutton who between them have over 40 years’ experience in the insurance industry. They offer a range of both personal and commercial insurance products to consumers and businesses in the local communities.

They pride themselves as being a local community broker as do The County Group. They believe there remains a strong need to provide quality products at competitive prices to the local community, backed by excellent service from experienced people who understand insurance.

Nick Potts will remain at NMJ as a consultant for 6 months post acquisition. All existing staff and premises will remain the same. With the acquisition of NMJ, The County Group now controls in excess of £80m GWP.

Dave Clapp, CEO of The County Group, commented:

“I’m delighted to welcome another fantastic brokerage to The County Group. I have known Mike and Nick for many years and admired their business from afar. They have entrusted NMJ Insurance to The County Group and we will continue to build on the exceptional work they have done in developing the business and supporting their people to deliver a fantastic service to their clients.

Our whole business model is built around great people delivering a great service from all of our locations throughout the UK and we now have a larger footprint to deliver this from. I’d like to warmly welcome NMJ to The County Group and I’m really excited to be working with them moving forward.”

Nick Potts, Director of NMJ commented:

“We’ve known the senior team at The County Group for many years and have been impressed with how they’ve run and grown their business”. Mike Hutton, Director of NMJ added, “We believe that NMJ will continue to prosper in the coming years under the stewardship of The County Group.”
