About Us

Insurance policies may have changed over the years, but one very important thing has been constant at Penberthy since the doors opened in 1977 – a genuine focus on people.

bruceFounded by Bruce Penberthy, (pictured left) who at the time had built a successful career of 17 years at NZI (a career path recommended by his Grandfather), today Penberthy Insurance is a clear example of how a family owned and operated businesses can deliver exceptional customer service.

Bruce built a successful business for 27 years and was very proud when in 2004 and then 2007, his sons Richard (below left) and John Penberthy (below middle) joined the family business, bringing new ideas and valuable experience from different fields. You see, Bruce knew that with his sons joining him in the business they could work together and bring fresh ideas and new products to the business. The father and sons set about consolidating the founding principle of the company – people first – and established a direction that has, as proven over the years, consistently delivered value – providing service for his clients.

In 2014, Bruce welcomed his son Mark Penberthy (below right) into the business as the company wanted to expend the services they could offer their clients. Mark has set up our new Mortgage Broking division which has set Penberthy Insurance apart from some major players in that we are now a one stop shop and are able to provide valuable advice and service to our clients in a much wider range.

Penberthy Insurance prides itself in being innovative with its ideas as this in turn provides further value to our client and this is what Penberthy is all about – our clients come first.
