Aston Lark Ireland announced it has acquired McMahon Galvin Limited, as part of its efforts to further the expansion of the group.
This is the fourth acquisition made by Aston Lark Ireland in 2021, following on from the three previous acquisitions of North County Brokers, O’Loughlin Insurance Group and Brady Burns and Associates.
Robert Kennedy, Aston Lark Ireland CEO, said: “From our initial meeting with the McMahon Galvin team, we were continually impressed with their client-centric approach which sits perfectly with the ethos of Aston Lark. With a loyal customer base and strong relationships with a broad range of insurers, it didn’t take us long to recognise the strength and brand presence that they have built over many decades, making them an excellent addition.
“This is another exciting step forward for Aston Lark Ireland as we look to deliver on our vision to become the leading independent and most trusted insurance broker in Ireland.”
Peter Blanc, Aston Lark Group CEO, added: “We’re delighted to welcome the McMahon Galvin team to Aston Lark Ireland – to have successfully traded and looked after clients for 50 years just shows what a high-quality business this is. We’re proud to have them join us.”
Peter Hanlon, director of McMahon Galvin, said: “We are delighted to be joining Aston Lark, which marks an exciting milestone in our 50-year history. Our fantastic team (both past and present), loyal customers and our panel of insurer partners have played an important part in the progress and success of the business.
“We now have an exciting future together as part of Aston Lark, who will support us in the coming years to further enhance our offering to clients and assist in developing our team.”
John Galvin, director of McMahon Galvin, added: “I would like to assure all our customers and staff of our continued dedication to providing the best service and look forward to sharing the broader business platform which this transition offers.”
