Network Insurance Group (NIG) has recently acquired a majority shareholding and controlling interest in Armstrong’s Insurance Brokers, marking a significant milestone for both companies. As an existing shareholder and long-term business partner of Armstrong’s, NIG are thrilled to build on such great foundations, and are confident that this merger will enhance our capability in Tasmania, enabling us to offer clients even better service and surpassing expectations. With NIG’s expanded network of expertise and experience, as well as broader access to markets and infrastructure, we’re committed to delivering great client outcomes that meet the unique needs of our customers.
To support this, we’re proud to announce that Jenni Jones, a long-term stalwart of the business, has been appointed as the new State Manager (Tasmania) of Armstrong’s Insurance Brokers, where she will lead the team alongside the existing leadership team of Chris Connolly, Paul Holmes, Heath Clark, and Emmy McKillop. With this team in place, we have never been as committed to building on the legacy and goodwill that has been built by generations of staff and their clients over 40 years in and around greater Tasmania.
Andrew Broughton, CEO of NIG, commented, “We have long held Hayden, Brooke, and their team in high regard, both as an Insurance Broker and as people with significant integrity, drive, and passion. With Hayden and Brooke stepping down, and Jenni and her team taking the reins, bringing two very similar cultures together is ambitiously exciting, and we look forward to continuing to honour the legacy and goodwill built over time. The journey so far with the team has been incredibly engaging and collaborative, representing potential in an area of Australia where we have active plans for ongoing business growth in supporting a range of existing and new clients going forward.”
