A new Penzance office
As part of its ongoing expansion in the Southwest, Seventeen Group’s Cornish team has moved to a larger premises in Penzance.
The move comes with significant changes for the broker; merging the Marine and Marine Trades teams, which will now be known collectively as Everard Insurance Brokers inc. Christopher Rowe. The remaining parts of the business will continue to trade as James Hallam.
Paul Anscombe, CEO, Seventeen Group comments: “The Christopher Rowe team in Penzance are now very much part of our business following their acquisition last year, and the brand change on marine enables them to adopt the highly valued Everard name in this sector. The team is growing and so we took the opportunity to move into exciting new premises close to the existing office, remaining part of the community.”
“Our acquisition of Torbay Insurance Services this year has expanded our presence in the Southwest to Plymouth, Penzance, and Torquay. We have several specialist sectors highly relevant to this region including marine, marine trades, hotels, travel, and fish processors.”
Brendon Ladner, branch manager, Penzance adds: “Having lived in Penzance my whole life, it is great to see a national company recognise the value of having a Cornish office. This is a huge investment within Penzance, and I look forward to overseeing a period of growth, along with being involved and supporting the local community wherever possible. This is also an excellent opportunity for local people to build a professional career with a forward thinking company, whilst living in the most beautiful part of the world.”
