Insurance brokers Hemal and Ravita Patel have bought the Coversure Milton Keynes franchise from Jeff Robins and Jeff Lehmann.
Mr Robins and Mr Lehmann have run the franchise together for 13 years.
Mr Patel said “Ravita and I have a wealth of experience in the insurance industry as well as local knowledge. We’re really looking forward to providing the existing Milton Keynes customers with the same levels of service that they have become accustomed to for over 24 years now, as well as growing the business through our own activity.”
Mr and Mrs Patel have relocated the business to High Street, Newport Pagnell, just a short walk away.
Coversure Milton Keynes is a franchise of Coversure Insurance Services, based in Newport Pagnell, formed when Mr Robins and Mr Lehmann merged their respective franchises Coversure Buckingham and Coversure Woburn Sands in 2000.
Mr Robins was the first ever franchise holder having opened Coversure Buckingham back in 1989.
Coversure franchise director, Bob Darling, praised Mr Robins and Mr Lehmann. He said: “They have lived through a lot of change at Coversure, and been part of its growth. Indeed, it was Jeff Robins who ‘cut the ribbon’ when we moved to our current HQ in Huntingdon back in 2003. We’ll be sorry to see the ’Jeffs’ go, and wish them all the very best in their retirement and a well-earned rest.”
