Seventeen Group Acquires East Pennine Insurance Consultants

Seventeen Group has acquired East Pennine Insurance Consultants (EPIC) which trades as Fletcher Smith in Sheffield and North East Insurance Brokers in the North East.

The business was originally formed in 1985 and controls £6.1M GWP. There are 9 staff in total, including Directors Steve Brooke and Simon Walton.

EPIC has a strong presence in the motor trade sector and so will become a ‘centre of excellence’ within the Group for this class of business as well as developing wider opportunities for James Hallam and Seventeen Group in the North.

Seventeen Group CEO Paul Anscombe adds: “I am pleased to welcome the EPIC team. This is our first acquisition in Yorkshire and so represents a huge opportunity to build our presence going forward. We have achieved significant success in developing other regional businesses across the UK and EPIC
creates additional value through its extensive motor trade knowledge and experience”.
