Broker will specialise in commercial and SME

Champion Accountants has set up its own insurance broker, specialising in the commercial and corporate SME market.

The Manchester-based business will initally start broking for its accountancy clients but eventually expand into the wider market.

Managing director Dan Maloney is joined by commercial account manager Carl Jones, who has worked in insurance for over 20 years.

Maloney spoke of his team’s “strong technical knowledge, extensive experience in placing complex risks, and excellent relationships with major insurers”.

Partner Ged Cosgrove said Maloney “has the expertise to further establish Champion as the North West’s leading business adviser to SMEs”.
