Peter Blanc, Aston Lark Group CEO, said: “When I first met Paul and Lee, it was clear that they share the same client service ethos as Aston Lark. We’re becoming a real powerhouse in Private Medical Insurance, and I’m delighted to welcome Paul, Lee and their team to the Aston Lark family.”
Paul Wright, founding Director of Phoenix Healthcare, added: “Both Lee Shorter and I have over 35 years’ experience in the industry, and are delighted to choose Aston Lark as the long-term partner for our business. We firmly believe that they will be a great home for our staff and share our client-first approach to corporate healthcare broking.”
Meanwhile, the market for private healthcare services in the UK is forecast to reach US$13.8bn by 2025 due to a rise in NHS waiting times and referrals to the private sector.
