LHK Insurance is the result of a merger in 2013 between two longstanding family owned, well recognised businesses namely LHW General Insurance, Dublin & Kelleher Insurance, Drogheda. Following on from this, the merged business took the decision to rebrand as LHK in 2016, recognising both legacy companies whilst operating under one clear brand going forward.
The LHK business originates in Dundalk, County Louth where Kelleher Insurance was established by Myles Kelleher in 1938. Myles’ grandson, Colm Kelleher, is now the existing Managing Director of the company in its current form as LHK Insurance. The merger of both these businesses has created one of the leading, independently-owned insurance brokers in Leinster. The company is recognised as a market leader in providing risk advice and insurance placement services for commercial and corporate clients across Ireland.
LHW was itself formed by the merge of Lewis Traub and Bradley Williams Insurance Brokers in 2001 when Graham Hohn joined the company from RSA. LHW acquired 2 other brokers namely Webb Insurances Ltd and M N Maiden & Co Ltd in 2004 and 2007 respectively.
