Ausure and Strategic Insurance Services (SIS) announce the merger of their Tasmanian Businesses

Ausure and Strategic Insurance Services (SIS) are pleased to announce the merger of our Tasmanian businesses. SIS operate as an authorised representative of Ausure and is a long-standing business with offices in Hobart, Ulverstone and Smithton. The business is led by Managing Director Chris O’Neill and his business partner David Reid. Ausure’s Hobart-based portfolio is led by Joanna King.

Ausure’s Hobart staff will relocate to the Strategic office in Rosny Park and bring the total number of staff in the combined business to 14. Chris O’Neill will continue as Managing Director of the merged business with David (Insurance Broking Manager) and Joanna (Business Operations Manager) as the other Hobart-based business owners.

Scott McCarthy, Ausure CEO shares, “I am really pleased we are able to bring our Tasmanian businesses together. I’ve known Chris and David for a very long time and am excited that we can do this together. Joanna has played a key role within Ausure for a number of years, helping us with many areas of the business across the country, so it’s great to see her now move into the next phase of her career and life. In addition to the usual benefits of a larger business, the merged business brings together some really complimentary strengths that will place it in a great position to provide market-leading service and advice to its clients.”

Chris O’Neill, Managing Director of SIS explains, “After 23 successful years operating Strategic the time is right to combine our strengths for not only business growth but also to bring on board additional experienced Ausure staff to ensure we can continue to service our clients at the level they are familiar. With Joanna and her team joining Strategic, the future is exciting”.
