Global insurance broker set for growth with new Wakefield head office
Insurance specialist Gallagher has officially opened its new head office in Wakefield during a period of sustained growth in the Yorkshire region.
Following an organic five year revenue growth for 22 per cent for its Wakefield teams, Gallagher, which has a branch network with over 50 locations across the UK, made the decision to invest in the city as part of its ongoing expansion.
The insurance and risk management consultancy firm was joined by Cllr Darren Byford for the official ribbon cutting ceremony this week, unveiling Gallagher’s newly refurbished premises at Phoenix Court.
Speaking at the launch, Cllr Byford commented: “The launch of Gallagher’s brand new regional head office signifies an exciting milestone, not only for the insurance broker, but also for the city of Wakefield.
“The impressive facility will bring exciting additional jobs to the region and will be a valuable asset to local businesses, large and small, looking for additional support with their risk management and insurance needs.”
Housing the company’s existing team of 200 staff, the new office also has space to accommodate an additional 70 employees in line with the firm’s regional growth plans.
Andrew Brown, Wakefield branch director at Gallagher, added: “This investment will see Wakefield become an increasingly important commercial hub for the region, while giving us the space to press ahead with our strategic development plans and create opportunities for future business growth.”
