GWS Network

Founded in 1995 by Graham Spooner, GWS Insurance Brokers was a general insurance broking business based in Melbourne.

In 2004, Graham was joined by Cameron Bott as co-proprietor of the business, facilitating succession planning for the business, and enabling Cameron to transition into the business as a majority shareholder. Under Cameron’s stewardship, GWS grew considerably through acquisition and through organic means.

GWS Network Insurance Brokers was formed and significant scale was achieved by way of the 2010 acquisition of Network Insurance Brokers (NIB). NIB was successfully integrated into GWS, with the combined businesses complementing each other to deliver an expanded customer service offering.

GWS Network Insurance Brokers has strong experience in developing innovative schemes that provide tailored risk solutions for specific industry niches and occupations; for example, offering specialist cover to post offices and mail contractors, and providing specialist cover for customers in the alpine industry.

GWS Network’s legacy continues on today as Network Insurance Group
