Covéa Insurance and Sterling teams join forces in Manchester office

13th August 2015

The Covéa Insurance and Sterling Insurance regional teams are getting to know each other better, joining forces in a single Manchester office as both companies edge closer towards integration. Earlier this month, the Sterling team moved into the Covéa Insurance regional office in Deansgate, which provides a flagship city centre location to trade from.

The combined regional trading team will be able to offer brokers a broader range of products than they had access to previously, creating potential new trading opportunities for broker partners of both businesses.

Simon Cooter, Commercial Lines and High Net Worth Director commented:

"Combining our Manchester teams on a single site allows them to start working together to ensure that we can provide the best possible local service to our brokers and supports the continued growth of our already strong portfolio in the Manchester region. Our primary focus is on building a business around the needs of our broker customers and the talented people we have in the organisation; as such, bringing our teams together now is another important milestone in ensuring we do that and is further evidence of our planned ongoing investment in the regional market place."

All other regional offices continue to trade as usual.
