Kingfisher acquires Nottingham-based broker Smiles Risk Solutions

Kingfisher Insurance is pleased to welcome Nottingham-based insurance broker Smiles Risk Solutions to our business.

Led by Director Scott Miles, Smiles built up a loyal and established customer base – primarily in the East Midlands and South Yorkshire – providing commercial insurance and specialist motor trade insurance to a range of businesses.

The acquisition of Smiles Risk Solutions will not impact upon the insurance arrangements of Smiles’ clients, as Scott Miles and his team have joined Kingfisher and will continue to service their business.

Additionally, in becoming part of the Kingfisher family, Smiles’ clients can gain access to a wider team of established and experienced insurance professionals, who will seek innovative and leading insurance solutions to meet their specific needs.

Scott Miles, Director of Smiles Risk Solutions, said: “Having established Smiles in 2020 amidst the pandemic, we built a business based upon a customer focused proposition, ensuring our clients received a personal, professional service.

“To allow for the continued growth and development of the business, we looked for additional support and resources from a broker who shared our values. Kingfisher is the natural home for our clients, as their values are completely aligned to our own.

“I am looking forward to continuing to support our clients, and I’m excited by the possibilities that have opened up in joining an ambitious, progressive broker in Kingfisher.”

Pauline Brookes, Head of Motor Trade at Kingfisher, commented: “I’m really pleased to welcome clients of Smiles to Kingfisher Insurance. Having previously worked with Scott, I know we share a dedication and passion to deliver the best possible service and product offering we can for our clients.

“As we look to grow our business to help more commercial and motor trade clients, we welcome Smiles’ clients on board and offer them assurance that Kingfisher will look to further develop an exceptional service for them and all our clients.”
