About Brunel Professions

Established in 2005, Brunel Professions offer a fully independent professional indemnity insurance (PII) broking service to businesses of all sizes.

The company has expanded quickly and now acts for over 6,000 professional clients and employs over 65 staff with offices across Bristol, Manchester, Perth and London.

Unlike general brokers, who offer insurance alongside other policies, or brokers who are tied to a single insurer, Brunel consider themselves genuinely independent PII specialists. The company placed clients with over 50 different insurers in the past 12 months.

Along with providing quality service to its customers, Brunel are dedicated to creating a positive place of work among staff at all sites.

Chief Executive Officer Russell A. Lane looks to promote collaboration between members of the team by spending time across all areas of the office while engaging with employees at every opportunity.
