Aktiv Assekuranz Munich with new company structure

The long-established Hamburg-based Droege company and Munich-based Aktiv Assekuranz Makler GmbH (AAM) have joined forces with immediate effect. Under the umbrella of the newly established Droege Holding GmbH arises one of the largest owner-managed insurance brokers and underwriters specializing in logistics and transport in Germany.

With regard to their core areas, both Droege and AAM will continue to operate as two independent marks in the market. In order to bundle powers and exploit synergies, the insurance brokers and underwriting activities will be restructured in the course of the merger. All of Droege's current brokers´ activities will be integrated into AAM and will trade under this name in the future. In return, W. Droege & Co. Assekuradeur will take over Bavaria Assekuradeur GmbH (BavAss), namely the current underwriting division of the Munich company, under its own name.

Droege Holding GmbH will also acquire the shares of Aktiv Turkey and Bavaria Güterschadenservice GmbH as well as holdings on DP Droege GmbH and Biometric Underwriting GmbH. Partners of the new holding company are Claes Droege, Volker Jendricke, Tanja Klindworth and Thomas Zimmermann. Jürgen Bochanski, founder and shareholder of Aktiv Assekuranz, and Detlef Dörrié, managing partner for many years, will continue to be the managing directors of Aktiv Assekuranz Makler GmbH. The same applies to the management levels of the other companies belonging to Droege Holding GmbH.

Through the merger of the two companies, Droege intends to hold its ground and position itself even more successfully in the increasingly competitive market in the future. Through the merger the company is to pursue a consistent and long-term growth strategy in Germany and abroad over the next few years. The company's expansion and consistent customer-oriented approach combined with the fact that the company has an attractive employer brand in the insurance brokers and underwriting market are to help Droege strengthen and consolidate its position in the market.
