Verlingue Acquires the Insurance Broker Cabinet Depeyre, a Specialist in Complex Corporate Risks, and the Underwriting Agency Depeyre Solutions
QUIMPER, France--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 11, 2023--
Verlingue, a subsidiary of the French Adelaïde Group, specialising in corporate protection, is continuing its external growth strategy with two new acquisitions that will consolidate its presence in the Grand Est region (France).
Set up in 1997, the insurance broker Cabinet Depeyre specialises in consulting and management of complex business risks. Depeyre Solutions, created in 2014, is an underwriting agency specialising in business risks for brokers and general agents. The group has 23 employees for just over €4m in commissions.
The insurance broker Cabinet Depeyre, specialised in complex business risks, works with its customers to analyse, prevent and manage their risks. The Cabinet Depeyre teams have acquired special expertise in high-pressure sectors such as the wood processing industry, transport and logistics, manufacturers and traders of building materials, etc., whether in matters of Civil Liability or Property Damage.
Depeyre Solutions, which is intended to remain an autonomous entity affiliated to the Adelaïde Group, sells insurance solutions as an underwriting agent (MGA) for business risks, mainly in the fields of Vehicle Fleet, Property Damage and Civil Liability.
“With Verlingue, I firmly believe that our teams will be able to provide even better support to our customers and provide them with all the solutions offered by a company with which we already share common values and a vision of our role as a trusted partner in risk management,” says Jean-Michel Depeyre, head of both companies.
After the acquisition of RT Global Insurance in Portugal at the end of 2022, the acquisition of Cabinet Depeyre and Depeyre Solutions in France consolidates Verlingue’s external growth dynamic as part of its 2024 strategic plan.
“ Verlingue has a powerful, sustainable and profitable growth strategy in place. In a consolidating business sector, being a family-owned broker with an ambitious and long-term vision allows us to map out great plans for the teams that decide to join our adventure. I’m delighted that Jean-Michel Depeyre has jumped on board,” says Gilles Bénéplanc – CEO of the Adelaide Group and Verlingue.
