Following the acquisition, the R McGee business will now report to Brown & Brown Retail director Matt Hartigan, who is also the CEO of Higos, a broker business of Brown & Brown for the South West.

Commenting on the latest transaction, Hartigan said: “Andrew, Julie and Simon’s business is an object lesson in how to build a successful community broker predicated on high-quality service and a deep understanding of the community where the firm operates.

“It is great that they have agreed to commit their future to Brown & Brown, and we look forward to giving the team all the additional support they need to take R McGee to the next level.”

The transaction will not impact operations at the R McGee office in Maesteg, which will continue to remain in place.

The entire existing R McGee team will now become part of Brown & Brown.

Andrew McGee added: “We are looking forward to putting our future and those of our customers into the hands of Brown & Brown.

“The family ethos that runs through the business even now was apparent in our discussions with Matt, and that was an important factor in our decision to sell. Matt painted a compelling picture of the opportunities ahead for us and our customers and clients, and we are excited to be a part of it.”
