A-Plan accelerates expansion plans with appointment of Jonathan Hartley

A-Plan Insurance, one of the UK’s leading independent high street insurance brokers, are pleased to announce the appointment of Jonathan Hartley to the newly created role of Acquisitions Manager.

Jonathan joins from Swinton Insurance where he spent 12 years playing a key role in the business’ acquisitions strategy, completing over 100 deals during his time with the firm. He brings with him a wealth of industry experience and in his new position will lead A-Plan’s acquisition strategy, identifying opportunities to acquire well run local brokers and specialist insurance businesses.

Jonathan’s arrival at A-Plan signals an acceleration of the business’ growth strategy following the completion of Hg Capital’s acquisition earlier this year.

Commenting, Carl Shuker, Chief Executive at A-Plan said: “We’re delighted to welcome Jonathan at such an exciting time for the business. He has significant experience in developing and executing a successful expansion plan and with the market remaining fragmented, we see significant opportunities to broaden our footprint and deliver A-Plan’s leading levels of service to an even larger number of clients. His specialist expertise will help further position us as an attractive partner for independent brokerages looking for a good home for their businesses, where the client’s needs remain at the heart of what we do.”

Commenting, Jonathan Hartley, Acquisitions Manager at A-Plan said: “Carl and the team have built an outstanding business and one that provides a strong platform for growth with the firepower of a supportive new shareholder. I’m excited about the prospect of working with a talented set of new colleagues to further develop A-Plan’s leading customer proposition and deliver this on an increasingly national scale.”
