RSA has opened a new trading site in Birmingham.

The insurer announced earlier this year plans to close its Birmingham office which housed 190 staff.

At the new Birmingham site which opened in August RSA’s platinum brokers will be able to drop in and transact face-to-face with underwriters.

Deena Hemming will manage the office and will report into RSA regions and SME director Lee Mooney.

Mooney added: “Our regional presence is important to us and the opening of this new Birmingham office is an exciting development in our history at the very heart of the Midlands’ insurance market.

“This move reflects our ongoing commitment and investment to being the partner of choice and building stronger relationships with brokers, by providing easy, local access to the best of our products and experts.

“I would like to take the opportunity to thank local broker partners, clients and employees for their ongoing support. We look forward to continuing to provide competitive insurance products and services for the region by trading with our partners locally.”
