Who Are We


Lewis Limited was established by Iain Smart in January 2000 following 30 years of experience in the insurance industry, with particular expertise in superannuation, employee benefits, and group insurances generally. He was joined by Julie Mackie a few years later. Her accounting and consulting experience was valuable both to the business and the clients. Both Iain and Julie remain part of Lewis Limited; Iain as Director and Julie provides back-up services for accounts.

With the assistance of some wonderful administrators, the company developed into a trusted provider of insurance solutions. And, over time a relationship was developed with Maurice Trapp Group. Working with their team gave us opportunities for sharing business development and technical training. So the decision for Lewis Limited to merge with Maurice Trapp Group in October 2013 was easy. From then, Lewis Limited obtained additional shareholders and most importantly, the advantages of a much larger and younger team to help provide security and top-class service for our clients into the future.

Our New Team

Tim has been in the insurance industry since 2007 – and with Maurice Trapp Group since 2009. Following the merger of Lewis Limited and Maurice Trapp Group Tim has taken an increasing leadership role in all aspects of managing Lewis Limited and their clients.

Tim is motivated by delivering superior customer service, with his clients at the heart of everything he does. Tim has a wealth of experience in business and individual risk, and the insurance products to meet those needs. More recently, he has enjoyed discovering the nuances of group insurance products, so he is now able to advise on the most appropriate insurance options for all situations.
