Wiltshire: Portmore Insurance Brokers opens new branch

Portmore Insurance Brokers has opened a new branch in Wiltshire.  The Salisbury-based branch will work alongside the company head office in Southampton to promote the brand and convey Portmore’s promise of a ‘Refreshing Approach to Commercial Insurance’ across the south.

The branch is led by Simon Reeves who has 24 years’ experience in commercial insurance broking, and has worked for small independent companies through to multi-national insurance brokers. During his time he has held several different roles from trainee broker to account executive, and business analyst to business development manager.

Incorporated in Southampton in 2006, Portmore opened a branch in Sussex in 2012, and a further branch in Surrey in 2013, and it is now the leading independent broker on the south coast. In February this year Portmore’s head office made the bold move into impressive new Southampton offices to house its expanding team of insurance professionals.

A spokesperson for Portmore said: “Our service are all catered for in-house, which gives Portsmore an edge over the household name brokers which tend to outsource their claims, accounts and marketing services.”

The new branch’s first client is D C Contractors, a well-established North Dorset-based building contractors firm specialising in quality house building, extension and maintenance.

Simon Down of D C Contractors said: ‘’Moving our insurance to Portmore was a ‘no brainer’. Simon Reeves provided clear advice and help from the outset, identifying potential problems and inadequacies with our existing policies. He demonstrated a range of competitive quotations, and we ended up with better cover for less premium, all consolidated and easy to understand. Knowing Simon is just a phone call away is very reassuring and I recommend him highly.’’
