New England Brokers forming part of growth strategy

Aviso EIA is excited to announce the acquisition of New England Brokers forming part of its growth strategy…

Based in Stanthorpe, New England Insurance Brokers has been in business for over 25 years, building strong and trusting relationships in the local community. In more recent times the family-owned business has been successfully led by Russell and Jeremy Smith.

The New England acquisition aligns with Aviso EIA and the broader Aviso Group and Envest vision to build a national network of brokers representing both regional and metro areas. “We love investing in regional brokerages, typically these businesses have been around for a long time giving great advice and service to a loyal client base.” Aviso Group CEO Craig Robson said.

Aviso EIA Director and Head of Broking Operations, Shane Risby said he was thrilled that Russell and Jeremy trusted Aviso EIA was the appropriate business to look after their loyal client base going forward. “We are looking to grow Aviso EIA with businesses that align with the Aviso culture and long-term strategies. New England Insurance Brokers fit geographically and have a fantastic reputation which is supported by some niche products and schemes that will contribute to the broader Group.”

Russell and Jeremy will be assisting with the transition of clients over the coming months.
