Ribbon cut on Birmingham offices

Covéa Insurance has opened a 3,000 sqft regional office in Birmingham, after it incorporated Sterling Insurance last month.

The new offices house13 underwriters serving Commercial Combined, Motor Trade Combined, Motor Fleet, Commercial and Residential Property Owners, High Net Worth Household and Family Fleet.

The team is led by Branch Manager Wendy Travers, Haj Aujla, Regional Lead Underwriter, and Regional Development Managers Kirk Peattie and Derek Bradshaw.

The new office is equipped with extensive broker meeting facilities that will also support the popular broker training academy programme in Birmingham, which has been successfully established by Sterling Insurance and which, as an integrated business, the company remains fully committed to.

Keith Hector, Director of Regional Operations for Covéa Insurance, said, ‘This new office is a clear demonstration of our commitment to developing our regional proposition in the Midlands and with the potential to further increase the size of our team in the coming years.

It is a major long-term investment in the Midlands region, and highlights our continued desire to engage with our Broker Partners on a regional and local basis.’
