Broker insurer MMA has opened the doors to its new regional office in Newcastle, and announced the local team appointed to take the insurer forward in the North East region.
The Newcastle office will be lead by Anthony Harris, Business Development Manager and Regional Underwriter Ian McIntire. They have been with MMA for seven and two years respectively.
Derek Plummer, Commercial Director of MMA commented: “Newcastle is our second regional office to open in 2010 as part of our ongoing UK expansion. It very much follows the model we have successfully introduced in other locations where brokers value our approach enabling them to develop local relationships with the local underwriting decision makers.
Anthony and Ian have the local credentials to maximise SME business opportunities in the North East building on their existing broker relationships”. Initial broker reaction to our announcement has been very positive so we look forward to MMA becoming a real force in the Newcastle market.”
Newcastle is the first of three new offices including Bristol and Chelmsford in addition to their regional offices in Manchester, Glasgow, Reading and Birmingham.
MMA is running a series of broker forums around its new regional offices beginning with the North East this week. These events support the local offices and give MMA management an insight into regional brokers’ requirements.
