Brendan McManus, PIB CEO, said: “I’d like to give a very warm welcome to everyone at Erskine Murray, which is another fantastic business to be joining PIB Group.
“This represents a strong strategic fit thanks to a range of complementary attributes including their core lines of business, focus on clients and excellent service, and investment in people.”
He added: “While their geography will see our national footprint expand further, clients of Erskine Murray can continue to enjoy a professional, local and friendly service while accessing extra capability from the broader group offering.
“I look forward to seeing the business flourish further with PIB’s investment and support.”
