Yorkshire based insurance broker gears up for growth with hat-trick of office moves

Yorkshire based independent insurance broking and risk management specialist, TL Dallas, is expanding after relocating three of its offices to new premises, which follows the successful launch of two new businesses within the group last year.

TL Dallas, which has 11 UK offices, expanded into Lincolnshire at the end of 2021, launching Dallas Scott Davey with experienced insurance professionals, Ed Davey, and Darren Scott, who have 45 years combined industry experience.

Dallas Scott Davey offers specialist agricultural and business insurance and has now relocated to Plowright House, which is the University of Lincoln’s former agricultural campus within its Riseholme Estate.

The company now has a team of three in Lincoln and plans to triple in size over the next 18 months, recruiting six new account handlers and brokers.

In April 2021, TL Dallas also opened an office in the Craven district of North Yorkshire. Known as Dallas Wilding Drew, the office is headed up by Simon Drew and Mark Wilding and offers general commercial insurance to privately owned businesses across all sectors.

Originally located in Settle, Dallas Wilding Drew has already grown to a team of four people, following the recent appointment of Shirley Walters from Marsh Commercial, and has now expanded into larger offices at Asquith Business Park in Gargrave near Skipton.

In addition, the London office of TL Dallas has relocated to 14 Devonshire Square, in the City of London, close to Liverpool Street Station. The office has recently recruited three new people and now has a 16-strong team supplying commercial insurance products to businesses across all industries, SMEs and hotels.

Polly Staveley, managing director at TL Dallas, said: “Simon, Mark, Ed, and Darren are all very experienced and genuinely strive to offer their clients the best products and advice possible and will negotiate hard on their behalf, so we knew they’d be a great fit for TL Dallas.

“Putting their names over the door and launching these businesses is a great way for us to bolster our business and service offerings in new areas, whilst giving experienced industry stalwarts the opportunity to be shareholders in the business.

“Our London office is also going from strength to strength and relocating to prestigious new premises in the heart of the City is an exciting prospect as we continue to grow our client base in the South of England.”
