Global Risk Partners expands Irish footprint

Dublin-based commercial broker Crotty Insurance, which was acquired by Global Risk Partners last year, has purchased Cavan-based broker Martin Insurance. The target broker specialises in commercial covers such as airside, marine and cargo, professional indemnity, contractors, construction, apartment block and motor fleet.

Eoin Greene, CEO of Crotty Insurance, said: “We have made no secret of our desire to grow inorganically when the right opportunity arises. Martin is a quality business and marks the first of what we hope will be a number of deals in the Republic of Ireland.”

Martin will retain its office in Cavan and its branding, while the entire team will remain with the business in Cavan and become part of the Crotty team on completion.

James Martin, the second-generation head of Martin Insurance, said: “We are delighted to be joining Crotty and the wider GRP Group. Crotty is, like ours, a business insurance specialist with a focus on customer service and technical expertise.

“Eoin and the Crotty team have a great understanding of the importance we attach to the community we serve. Our customers will benefit from wider access to insurance markets and our staff can look forward to having the support of a larger team and more sway with insurers.”
