Finch Group, the Manchester and Halifax-based insurance broker, has expanded to Sheffield.
Finch is part of French insurance group Verlingue and says opening the new offices on Sheffield Business Park is the first stage of an aggressive growth strategy launched following the appointment of new group managing director Mike Latham.
Chris Finch, who has more than 30 years insurance broking experience in large corporate and international business, will head the new Sheffield office.
Mr Finch said: “Our move to Sheffield reinforces our commitment to the Sheffield City Region and its business community.
“Our strengths in particular lie in international, technology and retail – offering a synergy with many companies in the region.
“I have lived in South Yorkshire for many years and seen the breadth and depth of business here and look forward to building further connections and finding solutions to real problems for clients.”
Verlingue operates in more than 100 countries.
