Broker Optin is first start-up to gain support

Freight and haulage commercial broker Optin is the first broker to be backed by Moorhouse Enterprise, which was created to support broker start-ups.

Optin director Mike Callard will be an appointed representative of the Moorhouse Group. He will own 60% of the business, while Moorhouse and its chairman, Lyndon Wood, take 20% each.

Wood said: “It has been great to see the first Moorhouse Enterprise project get off the ground. There are a lot of people who would like to start up their own business but are put off by the various hurdles and the economic climate.”
