Independent Broker of the Year
We’ve had a busy few months at Kingsbridge HQ. September to December is very much awards season in the business world. Having made it to the very final stage of both APSCo Affiliate of the Year and Business of the Year at the Gloucestershire Business Awards only to be pipped at the post on the evening, we were delighted to win Independent Broker of the Year at the Insurance Times Awards last night.
Seen as the most prestigious event in the insurance industry calendar, the ITA’s welcomed all of the industry’s biggest players to the InterContinental at the O2 in London to celebrate a year’s worth of outstanding achievement. To win such a highly-regarded award in the company of our peers (and host Jimmy Carr) was an honour and one that was well-deserved in light of the continued growth and success of the business.
The judges gave the following rationale for the victory: "To grow fast as an independent broker you need to focus your expertise. The winner has done just that, working with recruiters to identify contractors who are under-insured, building relationships with over 400 recruitment firms across the UK, and rapidly growing turnover to £12m and profit to £5m."
We’d like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to our customers, to our business partners, and to our staff for the continued hard work they put into making Kingsbridge what it is today.
Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’re off to celebrate!
