North-west based C&C Insurance Brokers has revealed the next step in its ambitious expansion plans, bolstering its business with a new Scottish operation. C&C’s new Dumfries & Galloway function, which will open in April, will be headed up by Lauren Kerr (pictured) who has joined the business to develop new business opportunities in the Scottish region.
Kerr, who spent 13 years with Towergate, has significant experience within the transport haulage and logistics industry and will be responsible for continuing C&C’s growth strategy within the sector. Commenting on her appointment, she said she is looking forward to enjoying the freedom of working for an independent brokerage of C&C’s calibre and the opportunity to further expand its brand.
Meanwhile, Malcolm Cooke, MD of C&C said: “We are delighted to welcome Lauren into the business and to a successful working partnership. Our continuing strategy of rolling out a branch network by targeting talented individuals is gathering momentum.”
The news is the latest in a series of strategic steps taken by the business which include the creation of branches in Newport South Wales, Chester, the Midlands & Leeds. C&C noted it has identified numerous opportunities for individuals who are working within large corporate organisations and looking to take advantage of the freedom that comes with independent broking.
