Hazelton Mountford celebrates 15 years of business success as leading Chartered Insurance Brokers

7 August 2023

Hazelton Mountford proudly commemorate our 15th year in the insurance industry.

Established in 2008 by Group Managing Director Gordon Hazelton, the company’s journey began with a vision to offer business clients the expertise of large corporate insurance brokers while delivering the personalised service and value for money synonymous with smaller independent businesses.

From its humble beginnings with just Gordon Hazelton and one assistant in a modest two-room office in Droitwich, Hazelton Mountford has rapidly grown into a significant insurance brokerage, now controlling in excess of £13.6m premium income. The unwavering commitment and dedication of the founding team, along with the invaluable addition of Jake Mountford a few months later, have been instrumental in driving the company’s success.

Today, Hazelton Mountford boasts a team of approximately 30 highly skilled professionals spread across their head office in Worcester City Centre and the latest branch in Evesham, which was inaugurated amidst the challenges of the 2020 lockdown. Simeon Chapman, the third Board Director, plays a crucial role in the company’s strategic growth.

Over the years, the company has expanded through strategic acquisitions, including the incorporation of Michael Rollett & Co, a well-established Pershore Insurance Broker. This addition seamlessly aligned with Hazelton Mountford’s commitment to providing exemplary care and service to their clients, ranging from local tradesmen and SMEs to large multinational corporations. HM Referencing was launched in 2012 and offers a first-class tenant referencing service:

Gordon Hazelton affirms: “No matter the size of our clients, each one receives personalised service and expertise. Our core values remain unwavering, and we are dedicated to maintaining our commitment to excellence.”

The success of Hazelton Mountford can be attributed to their exceptional team of professionals.

Jake Mountford emphasises: “Our people are at the heart of our accomplishments. We strive to recruit the best individuals who consistently uphold our founding principles.”

Weathering the challenges of the past few years, Hazelton Mountford has strengthened its financial position through prudent management, building strong reserves to support their continued growth and service excellence. Looking ahead to the next phase of success, the company is actively recruiting new talent and seeks to expand their client base, catering to those who desire the care and expertise offered by a locally owned business, proudly bearing the Chartered Status awarded to only 5% of insurance brokers in the UK.
