AIS Insurance Brokers, long-term corporate partner of South Melbourne FC, turns 20 this year.
The company was founded in October 1990 by Brendon Davis as a one person business specialising in insuring all forms of business and commercial risks. AIS initially operated from leased premises in Burwood, and in June 1991, AIS moved to South Melbourne where it has been based ever since. The organisation has steadily grown to become the leading autonomous Victorian based Insurance Broker. Clients work closely with AIS Insurance Brokers, knowing they receive superior advice and that they will recommend the insurance program and insurer that provide the best protection for their business rather than an insurer or option which offers an incentive to AIS.
AIS negotiate specific corporate and commercial insurance placement for clients in a variety of industry classifications and also niche products developed for special client groups. AIS have several specialist teams including: Property & Construction Team, Professional Indemnity & Directors Liability, Workers Compensation and Workcover, Claims Management, Wholesale Insurance (to other insurance brokers only).
Over the years AIS have been involved in some interesting and amazing insurance placements. In 1999 AIS insured the importation of several White Rhinoceros out of South Africa for our Australian Zoos. AIS have insured the work on many oil and gas pipelines, the construction of many landmark city buildings but most importantly they have been able to work with many small and medium sized businesses helping them grow and prosper.
AIS have over 30 staff with in house specialists in most general insurance disciplines. The organisation is one of the few Victorian Brokers admitted as coverholders at Lloyds of London since 1994.
Brendon Davis, founder of AIS Insurance Brokers, has been a generous financial contributor to South Melbourne FC through event and signage sponsorship, purchasing players at player auctions, and general assistance over the years. Brendon commenced sponsoring South Melbourne FC in 1997/98, and was also awarded the Sam Papasavas Award for his contribution to the Club in 2006.
As part of the 20th birthday celebrations, AIS Insurance Brokers has generously announced a 20th goal promotion where the score of the 20th goal for the season (and each multiple of 20 being 40, 60, 80, 100) receives $20. Therefore, 20 x $20 =$400.
South Melbourne FC wishes both Brendon and AIS Insurance continued success, and a very happy 20th birthday to AIS.
