Marshall Wooldridge Managing Director, Geoff Kirk, said: “Completing the deal was a great way to kick off 2022. Goldthorpe is a good fit for us; it is a family-owned and managed business with a strong local presence, writing commercial and personal lines business.

“We will retain the Goldthorpe brand and office, and I’m confident that with the added support from Marshall Wooldridge and our parent GRP, the team will have the opportunity to accelerate their growth in Rotherham and the rest of South Yorkshire.”

Steven Garlick, who founded Goldthorpe over 30 years ago, said: “Marshall Wooldridge are a big Yorkshire broker, but Geoff and the team understand the value of community presence, as well as the strength of our being a family business.

“It was clear during our discussions that Marshall Wooldridge are the best possible custodians of Goldthorpe, enabling us to continue to play to our local strengths, but providing the additional product, service and regulatory support we need to offer our existing and future clients high quality insurance.”

Steven’s wife, Julia, together with son and daughter, David and Helen, work in the business and all the team will remain under new ownership.
