0 0

Liberty Mutual Insurance (LMI), the commercial lines division of Liberty Mutual Insurance Europe Limited (LMIE) and part of Liberty Mutual Insurance Group, announces its new office in Leeds will open on 30th April.

The office opening will be backed by four new appointments. Andrew Griggs has been appointed as casualty underwriter, Stephen Bate as property underwriter, James Seal as commercial combined underwriter and Eleanor Slater as underwriting assistant.

This move comes as LMI looks to strengthen its coverage in the North of England, building on the progress it has already made in mid-market commercial lines.

Leeds was chosen as the office location due to its importance as a growing business centre in the North as well as for its geographical coverage of Yorkshire and the North East. The new Leeds office, which is situated in the centre of the insurance community, will add to LMI’s existing commercial lines offering in Birmingham, London, Bristol, Cheltenham and Manchester.

LMI’s Leeds operations will be managed by John Dakin, branch manager, who joined the company last year, bringing with him many years of experience gained in broking in the northern region.

Commenting on the continued commercial lines expansion, LMIE CEO, Sean Rocks, said: “The opening of the Leeds office together with the new appointments we have made will further drive the commercial lines momentum we’ve created so far. This latest move reinforces LMI’s commitment to the UK regional market and to our brokers by giving them access to knowledgeable and experienced experts in their local area.”
