Partners& bolsters its presence in the North-West

Partners& has welcomed SEP Insurance, experts in commercial vehicle, courier, and taxi risks to its portfolio of services for commercial clients. With locations in Bootle, Chester and Southport, the move extends the geographical footprint of Partners& across the North of England, building on its business operations in Bolton and Leeds.

With a track record for providing exceptional service and sound advice, the team of 20 has built trusted relationships with clients since it was established in 2018 and continues to go from strength to strength in this competitive market.

Phil Barton, Partners& Group CEO said: “Hailing from the North-West myself, I’m delighted that Phil and the team are now part of Partners&. Their experience and knowledge are second to none, and their care for their clients is truly impressive – they ensure they deliver the best experience for their clients, which can be difficult in this challenging sector. The team, led by Phil, really stand out – and for these reasons, I am confident they are an ideal fit with Partners&.”

Phil Stafford, SEP Managing Director said: We are thrilled to be joining Partners&.

Their ethos and culture match that of SEP Insurance and our employees. It was important that we identified a partner that would have our clients at heart and, with their expertise and resources, allow us to increase our client base and develop market opportunities.
