Jensten strengthens presence in Home Counties region with Melville Burbage acquisition

Jensten is pleased to announce it has acquired community broker Melville Burbage. The deal, which is subject to regulatory approval, brings a dedicated team of 15, along with two additional offices and will contribute £6 million GWP to the business.

Well known in the local area for delivering high-quality commercial broking solutions, Melville Burbage is a trusted partner for over 5,000 businesses and individuals. The company serves a diverse range of sectors, including construction, non-profit, and professional services. Additionally, the business has expertise in the engineering and printing sectors, new areas of specialism for Jensten which join an expanding cohort of specialist centres of excellence.

This acquisition marks Jensten’s continued strategic regional expansion across the UK, enhancing the business’ local presence and capability to service clients across the Home Counties. Directors Kevin Stevens and Darren Young at Melville Burbage will continue to lead the business, reporting to Robin Thomson, MD Jensten Insurance Brokers.

Kevin commented: “In joining the Jensten Group we embark on an exciting new chapter for Melville Burbage. It was very important to us that we joined a business that understood our growth ambitions but who would also value and be sympathetic to the lasting relationships we’ve cultivated with our clients. Jensten were an obvious choice for us, and we are looking forward to the opportunities this relationship will provide both for our people and our customers.”

Rob Organ, Jensten Retail MD, added: “We are pleased to be able to announce our latest acquisition of Melville Burbage. Growing our established footprint and adding new regional centres of excellence is a key element of our strategy, and one we’re making good progress on. Melville Burbage’s main office in Newbury is very complimentary to our existing regional presence in the Thames Valley and their reputation for delivering a high-quality service to local businesses, along with their expertise within the engineering and printing communities, perfectly complements our plans. We look forward to welcoming Kevin, Darren and the team to the Jensten family.”
