New division formed from acquisition of rival broker’s client book

Romford-based broker Grove & Dean has launched a motorsport insurance division after taking over the motorsport client book from rival broker MMC Broking Group.

The new division will be run by former MMC director Andy Hancock and Grove & Dean’s group corporate manager Darrell Atkins.

The division will provide motorsport insurance products for UK, European and International drivers and racing teams, from GT to Formula 1.

Grove & Dean managing director Damian Collett said: “Our company has a long and successful history insuring performance and sports cars, so our move into motor sport is a very natural one. We’re confident Grove & Dean Motorsport will offer tangible benefits to motor sport teams and individual drivers.”
