Autonet became part of the Ardonagh Group in 2017. The idea was to provide financial firepower and make acquisitions that would support other leading brands to deliver on the digital expectations of customers. The Atlanta Group was formed, and soon grew to include specialist motorcycle brand Carole Nash and high-street home and car broker Swinton Insurance, transforming operations and delivery while harnessing the strength and individuality of each business. More businesses followed, each bringing new expertise that could be shared across the Group.
Today, Atlanta employs over 2,100 colleagues and consists of some of the biggest personal lines brokers in the UK and Ireland, with a common goal to relentlessly pursue excellence in our markets, on behalf of over 2.6 million customers.
