John Kelly Insurance & Financial Services and Bruen Bros & Co. (Roscommon) Ltd. merge with Campion Insurance Group

John Kelly Insurance & Financial Services and Bruen Bros has been a well-known feature of Roscommon, Elphin and Boyle and its surrounding region for quite some time, offering a friendly, reliable and value-for-money service to its many clients.  Now it is set to grow and expand, benefiting those clients even more, with the news that it has joined forces with the very large Campion Insurance Group. Founded in 1984 by the husband and wife team of Jim and Margaret Campion, from a single office in Urlingford Co. Kilkenny, the Campion Group has evolved to become one of Ireland’s most modern and innovative commercial and personal lines brokers, with further offices strategically placed in Cashel, Kilkenny, Portlaoise, Thurles, Naas Road, Dublin, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath and Middleton, Co. Cork.  This success has been due to a unique combination of strategic partnerships and acquisitions. Now Roscommon, Elphin and Boyle are added to that wide-ranging service as the Campion Group takes the Roscommon Region under its wing.  Increased range of services – same friendly welcome Anyone who fears, however, that the familiar faces and the friendly personal approach at John Kelly Insurance & Financial Services and Bruen Bros. may change, has no reason to do so.  The company name will be Campion Kelly Bruen Insurance & Financial Services, and the structure will remain basically as is at present – with, however, the benefit of new directors and more staff, enabling an even better range of services. Jim Campion, Managing Director of the Campion Group, explains the philosophy behind its successful expansion. ‘In every case where an office has joined the Campion Group, the existing management has remained running the business. We have always recognised the importance of local knowledge and the value of the commercial and personal relationships which have built up over many years.  By retaining these vital roots within the community, yet enjoying the benefits which a large organisation offers in terms of skills and market reach, our clients can be sure they obtain the best solutions in an increasingly sophisticated and competitive insurance market.’ Campion Group staff, he is proud to say, are highly regarded throughout the insurance industry as a whole for their professionalism and integrity. They thoroughly analyse each clients’ insurance needs before undertaking an aggressive and pro-active market search, to ensure not only is the best advice given but also the best possible terms available are provided.  And, since cost is always such an important factor, it’s good to know that the working relationship which the Campion Group has built up with its insurers over many years has enabled them to provide their clients with more innovative and cost effective solutions, ultimately allowing the Group to flourish in an increasingly competitive market. Additional expertise and experience John Kelly and Peter Scott will remain as directors of the new company and they say they are delighted of the opportunity to further develop their existing business with the combined strength of the Campion Group. They have brought in Michael Gardiner as Manager. Michael has thirteen years experience in the industry and he will bring a new emphasis on looking after clients needs by introducing high quality and competitively priced products. Michael Gardiner, the new Manager of Campion Kelly Bruen Insurance & Financial Services, says he very much recognises the benefits the new company will bring to our existing staff and customers and the new opportunities available to develop his business.  ‘It will bring additional expertise and experience to Campion Kelly Bruen Insurance & Financial Services, as well as the increased ability to offer specialist insurance schemes because of the range and reach of the Campion Group. The Campion Insurance Group is in fact considered to be one of the top ten insurance brokers in the country, and prides itself on the service it provides to its customers.  In addition, it specialises in risk management assessment schemes and has a second-to-none claims service.  All good news for Campion Kelly Bruen Insurance & Financial Services and its existing customer base.
