One of the UK’s top privately-owned insurance brokers is kicking of a year of planned expansion by establishing a new office in Harrogate.

The branch at Cardale Park will provide Leeds-based Henderson Insurance Broking Group (HIG) with its fourteenth office in a network stretching from Stockton in the North to London in the South.

The office will officially launch on January 26 but is already open for business. It is headed up by Mark Robinson and has already created six new jobs. Additional staff who already work at the Group’s head office in Tingley, Leeds, and live close to Harrogate will also be joining the new team.

Mr Robinson joins from a six-year tenure at Bluefin in Harrogate. He said: “Having worked in Harrogate, I’ve been surprised at the lack of strong insurance broking support in the region. The town has a significant amount of major businesses who, I believe, would benefit from national capabilities and expertise delivered by a local office.”

HIG posted 10 per cent organic revenue growth in the last financial year, taking it to above £30m. The management team is hoping to finalise two acquisitions soon, which will take the Group’s revenue to around £35m.
