Hannah Lyon-Wall, who will continue as Managing Director of Fincred, spent more than six years at Markel International prior to taking over the family-owned business in 2016. FinCred will operate under its current brand and with its current team, as a wholly owned subsidiary of Sutton Winson.

We have also purchased Global Broking Solutions (GBS) in a deal which saw us acquire a client base which spans across all parts of Kent and West Sussex. The strategic move compliments the acquisition of FinCred as we look to form three established office locations in London, West Sussex and now Kent.

Mark McIlquham, president, Acrisure UK Retail, said: “We are excited to continue our expansion in southern England with these two acquisitions, led by the world-class Sutton Winson team. Hannah is a proven leader with a phenomenal track record and a huge future in the industry. We are genuinely delighted to welcome her and the rest of the team onboard.”

Gareth Roberts, Managing Director, Sutton Winson, said: “We are thrilled with the acquisitions of FinCred and GBS, and this is the beginning of something special we are building with Acrisure in the south. Acrisure will continue to support us in acquiring businesses with whom we can culturally align.”

Lyon-Wall said: “My family and I have known Sutton Winson for years, and when we decided the time was right to sell and become part of a larger organisation, there was only one business we even considered partnering with. We are incredibly specialist in our field and know that Acrisure’s global presence will have a massively beneficial impact on our future growth trajectory.”
