Stockport based C&C Group, consisting of C&C Insurance Brokers and C&C Healthcare, have expanded both operations opening new offices to extend their presence in the North of England.
The offices, based in Leeds, Hull and Chester, build on what is already an established strong portfolio, consisting of offices in Stockport, Greater Manchester, Newport, South Wales and London.
Tom O’Connell and Account Executive Tom Jackson join C&C in the newly acquired office in the centre of Leeds.
Tom O’Connell, previously with Gauntlet Group, joins as Branch Director, bringing with him a wealth of experience in the fleet insurance industry. Account Executive Tom has 7 years industry experience, mainly working in the motor fleet and transport sectors looking after and servicing clients.
Jeremy Stead has been appointed Branch Director to head up the Hull office. Jeremy has worked within the Hull market for many years and has already had a positive impact for C&C.
Paul Trafford will also be joining C&C in April as Branch Director based in Chester, focusing on further developing our presence across North Wales and Merseyside. Paul was previously an Associate Director with Griffiths and Armour and has specialism in the transport and commercial sectors.
Andrew Middleton will lead the Leeds branch for C&C Healthcare. Andrew was previously a Director at Punter Southall within the Health and Protection division, leading the consumer and SME healthcare businesses. Andrew was responsible for managing in excess of 7,000 clients and multi-million pounds worth of income.
Andrew’s role at C&C will be to establish the new office and build upon the great start made by C&C Healthcare.
Malcolm Cooke, Managing Director of C&C said:
“We are building on opportunities that have arisen as a result of our continued growth.
“Many people are frustrated working with consolidation models and we welcome dialogue with any individual or team irrespective of location, who want to discuss working with a truly independent broker.
“This is the right time to capitalise on this potential while we remain focused on staying 100% independent.”
