Leeds insurance broker opens seventh office

Leeds-based Romeo Insurance Brokers has opened a new branch in Harrogate, expanding its footprint to seven UK offices.

Based on Harrogate’s Cardale Park, the new office joins those in Leeds, Halifax, Stockton, Manchester, Nottingham and London.

Despite a challenging year for brokers and businesses, the firm saw a year of growth throughout 2020/21, which allowed it to invest in expanding its reach.

“I’m proud to be opening our new branch, which further extends our reach and allows us to continue delivering the exceptional service we’ve built our reputation on,” said CEO Justin Romero-Trigo.

“It’s important to me that we are accessible to our clients, in an environment where many brokers are consolidating and closing branches, I’m pleased we’re able to maintain and invest in the personal relationships that are so essential to what we do.

“The bedrock of this growth and flexibility is all down to our incredible team, and the fact that we have achieved all of this totally organically. Without any external investment or debt, giving us the flexibility to always do what’s best for our clients, not shareholders.”

The growth is underpinned by an investment in talent, with the firm recruiting 10 graduates on an all-new trainee programme.

The graduate trainee programme will give the recruits exposure to broking, client relationship management and claims handling across the Romero estate, ensuring a breadth of expertise.

Simon Mabb, Managing Director, said: “It’s such an exciting time for the business. Not only are we able to offer our bespoke service to a wider range of clients thanks to our new Harrogate branch, we’re also able to invest in our future teams with a fantastic cohort of graduates joining the business.

“To be able to see the future of our industry developing is really exciting, and I’m looking forward to seeing the fresh perspectives they can bring to Romero, as well as the support and training we can offer them.”
