Bollington Insurance is celebrating after being crowned the Insurance Times Commercial Lines Broker of the Year, collecting the nationally-recognised award at a prestigious event on 1st December at Battersea Evolution, London.
North-West based broker Bollington – with offices in Adlington (near Macclesfield), Altrincham and Bollington, and with 215 staff across the UK – was also shortlisted for two other awards: Broker Innovation of the Year and Brand Campaign of the Year.
The Insurance Times Awards – this year hosted by popular comedian David Walliams – bring together the biggest names in insurance broking from across the UK alongside household names in insurance, in celebration of the achievements of the industry. These include the likes of AXA, Ageas, RSA, LV, Aviva, Allianz and Zurich.
The Commercial Lines Broker of the Year award recognises the broker who ‘sets the standard for others in the market to follow,’ with judges considering business growth, innovation and adaptation to challenging market conditions as part of their assessment.
Bollington is no stranger to recent success, having picked up two British Insurance Awards last year (including Insurance Broker of the Year), and the 2014 Insurance Times Brand Campaign of the Year award.
Chris Patterson, Group Managing Director of Bollington, said: “This award recognises the tremendous efforts of our staff. They have really pushed the company forward over the last couple of years, delivering excellent service to our loyal clients.
“We feel great pride as a company that we have maintained our independence, allowing us to grow and innovate with a range of products and services that few brokers can match, during a period where mergers and acquisitions amongst other insurance brokers have accelerated.
“There is a real sense of achievement and excitement within Bollington at the moment, and we look forward to 2016 with confidence.”
