One thriving business insurance specialist has recently moved to a new office in Basingstoke.
Commercial insurance broking firm Finch has moved has adopted the area as its new home. The move is a positive one according to Vincent Gardner, Basignstoke native and Finch managing director.
Mr Gardner was tasked with the Woodley-based business’ business liability insurance arm when he joined in 1996. He stated that excitement was high regarding the move.
The professional indemnity insurance broking firm now occupies offices at Brinkletts House on the first floor of the Courtyard in Winchester Road. Mr Gardner was both confident that the firm will continue to be successful in the new area and also delighted that the new office has come to his own hometown as well.
Finch’s Basingstoke client numbers have gown in a consistent manner over the past five years, stated Mr Gardner. The managing director added that the new offices will enable the firm to provide even better service through its centralised location in the community.
The company carried out market research prior to setting up its new office. A gap in the local market was highlighted by the research, which revealed that there was a dearth of insurance specialists in the area could support local firms from Basingstoke town centre.
The firm already insures many businesses based both around and in the town, stated Mr Gardner. He felt that the opportunity for the business to grow is sure to be enhanced by this new initiative, though the managing director did state that the broking team situated in Reading will continue servicing these clients as well.
Area local Ryan Houston will be heading up the Basignstoke team. Mr Houston has more than a decade of experience in commercial broking.
