A Trusted Name In Insurance

Emerre and Hathaway Insurances Ltd was established in 1984 by Russell Hathaway and Wayne Emerre. The business developed into a well known locally owned and operated insurance broking firm with a large client base of residential, commercial and rural customers.

Since then both Russell and Wayne have retired and Stuart Harbottle, Andrew Willock, Darryn Emerre and Glen Hannah have joined as partners. This move confirms the company’s forward succession planning and making sure the business operates for many years to come.

“Even though the original partners have moved on, there was no point in changing our name as everybody knows the name Emerre and Hathaway” says Andrew.

Nationwide Insurance Broker Network


NZbrokers is New Zealand’s third largest insurance broking group, collectively representing over 53+ independent businesses across the country.

From Kerikeri to Invercargill, and everything in between. Recognizing the benefits of working together, the driving philosophy behind our rapid success is that each member leverages the strength and capability of our national group, while retaining their successful formula of local knowledge and long-standing relationships.

Each member includes only well-respected and well-established brokers with a common purpose to better serve their clients. And while backed by the professionalism, 30 years’ experience and support of its parent company, AUB Group Limited (ASX:AUB), NZbrokers is locally run, by local professionals, for local businesses.

Keeping ahead of the curve comes not in anticipating the future, but in creating it. And with over 120,000 clients and $420 million in Gross Written Premium (GWP), the power and capability of NZbrokers’ success is clear.

Along the way, we are defining what it means to be a comprehensive insurance and risk services group, building a reputation as the best partner in the insurance industry, and inspiring a successful future for our partners and clients.
