"After looking at all the options, I decided to join the most progressive broker in the area – The Insurance Partnership.

"The company’s commitment and reputation for high quality customer service is second to none and I look forward to working with the team to further contribute to The Insurance Partnership’s continued success.”

Ian Hakes, chairman of The Insurance Partnership said: “I’m delighted to welcome Clive to The Insurance Partnership.

"We have recently recruited a number of new staff members, due to our sustained growth over the past year. Clive is a valuable addition to our team and I look forward to working with him in the future.”
