Worcester’s only locally owned chartered insurance broker is celebrating its tenth anniversary.
Hazelton Mountford, based in Bank Street, will mark the occasion with a special event at its offices later in the year.
The company – which was launched by Gordon Hazelton and Jake Mountford – has seen phenomenal growth since it first opened its doors in 2008. From small beginnings, the company now employs 30 employees across its three companies within the group.
Gordon Hazelton, Managing Director at the firm said :”We are delighted to have reached such a milestone and look forward to a celebratory year ahead. When we launched our company in 2008, the financial services sector was being squeezed by the credit crunch and the country was in economic recession. We are therefore extremely proud of the solid customer base we have built up and the positive work culture we have developed within our organisation. We have also created 30 jobs for local people which is great news for the local economy.”
The company – which provides insurance in a number of sectors including business, property, transport and equine – works with a range of clients from small local charities to international corporate firms.
Gordon concluded : “Our 10 year anniversary is testimony to our industry expertise, excellent customer focus and solutions-based approach. We would like to thank all our clients and the dedication of our staff in helping us to reach such an important landmark. We look forward to continued success!”
The company has ambitious growth plans over the next few years including opening new offices and recruiting more employees.
The board of directors is made up of Gordon Hazelton, Managing Director, Jake Mountford, Director and Simeon Chapman, Director.
