Paul Ganjou, the founder of Paul Ganjou broker, will also continue with the business as a PCH brand ambassador.

PCH MD Stephen Hough said: “These are the seventh and eighth healthcare transactions completed in last two years. We have an appetite to continue to grow inorganically as well as organically in the health insurance sector, where there is significant further headroom for consolidation.”

“Many owner managers in the sector are approaching retirement and are inevitably thinking about the future for their clients, as well as looking to create value for themselves from their life’s work. We have a wide number of solutions for vendors in this position, and we are keen to hear from them as they weigh up their future options.”

In July this year, UK-based GRP acquired First Insurance Solutions, which serves the contracting industry including drainage, electrical, security and others.
