AN independent insurance broker with offices in Huddersfield has opened a new branch in Halifax.
Eastwood and Partners Ltd has taken space at Dean Clough Mills. The new site is being managed by senior account executive Andrew Templeton.
The office will complement the services offered by the firm’s premises at Northumberland Street in Huddersfield and Chapeltown, Sheffield, as well as its financial services company Eastwood and Partners (Financial Services) Ltd and Trinity Financial Advisers Ltd, which provide independent financial advice from offices in Lowfields, Elland.
The group now employs more than 90 people offering bespoke Insurance solutions, risk management and financial services to business and individuals.
John Eastwood, managing director of the Eastwood and Partners Group, said “We have been considering opportunities to open an office in Halifax for some time and we are delighted that Andrew Templeton has joined the team.
“Andrew brings with him a great deal of experience in the insurance broking industry and is well known to many in and around the Halifax area.”
Said Mr Eastwood: “Whilst we act for individuals and companies nationally and internationally, the core of our clients is based locally and we are delighted to have offices in the town of Halifax and to employ staff who demonstrate and nurture their strong links with the Calderdale business community.”
