“The team here has excellent knowledge and an in-depth understanding of the local area and the insurance requirements of our clients, so I am very much looking forward to working with them to capitalise on the opportunities that exist.”

Thomson added: “We have significant opportunities in our Milton Keynes branch and appointing someone of Craig’s calibre demonstrates our commitment to growing our business in this region. Craig has a proven track record in developing people and growing businesses so I have every confidence in his skills to lead the branch and I look forward to working with him.”
