South Melbourne FC is delighted to announce the renewal of its partnership with AIS Insurance, with its logo proudly featuring on the front of the playing shorts for the 2015 National Premier League Victoria season.
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 Insurance 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 Insurance has several specialist teams including: Property and Construction Team, Professional Indemnity and Directors Liability, Workers Compensation and Workcover, and Claims Management.
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, 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 the 1997/98 National Soccer League season, and was also awarded the Sam Papasavas Award for his contribution to the Club in 2006.
SMFC General Manager Peter Kokotis told smfc.com.au “we once again are proud to announce AIS Insurance as a commercial partner in 2015. This culminates in 19 years of ongoing support from Brendon and we are very appreciative to have strong South people in our family like him. On the commercial side, Brendon has increased his investment in the partnership, and this is indicative of the growing value our commercial partners are experiencing over recent years”.
