Gallagher snaps up FE Protect

Gallagher has expanded its presence in the education sector with the acquisition of FE Protect, a broker specialising in providing cover to further education colleges, UK universities and independent schools. The business was founded in 2016 and also operates under the brands Education Protect and Education Protect Scotland.

Tom Devine, regional managing director at Gallagher, said: “FE Protect is a brilliant addition to our public sector and education practice and the business dovetails very well with our current education client base.”

Alan Tune, director at FE Protect, added: “The UK’s further education sector is already significant in size, and continues to grow, meaning there are many opportunities for us to help protect additional organisations in the sector from the evolving risk landscape that they face.”
