An insurance broker has celebrated its 30th
anniversary with one eye firmly on the future.
Kerry London Limited, which was founded in 1986 by Joe Kelliher, began life with just three employees – but now boasts 150 staff across four sites in the City of London, Isleworth, Watford and Godalming, and is ranked among the top 50 insurance brokers in the UK.
Now, under the leadership of new CEO Imogen Coggan, the group has developed plans to expand in its specialist sectors, focusing on development of its people for controlled company growth. The business aims to turn over £20 million by 2020, up from £14.4 million in 2015.
Specialising in broking policies in the construction, manufacturing, healthcare, property and sport and leisure sectors, the group encompasses four brands – alongside Kerry London the others are Trade Direct, Self Build Insurance and Kerry London Underwriting.
Imogen Coggan said: “This year saw the launch of our five-year vision plan which involved significant investment and focuses on organic growth. Although we are still in the initial phase of the plan, so far we are well on track and we have a very positive outlook.
“It’s an exciting time for everyone at the company as we plan initiatives to help us achieve significant growth and increase our profits.”
anniversary event was held at Langan’s Brasserie Hall of Fame in London’s West End on the evening of September 29, with guests including former England rugby internationals Jason Leonard and Jeff Probyn, alongside leading figures from construction and insurance industries.
Joe Kelliher, the founder of Kelliher Insurance Group, said: “These are exciting times for the Kelliher Insurance Group. We are looking forward to the next 30 years of our journey and with four strong trading brands employing 150 people, the time is right to move into the next phase of our growth. I look forward to seeing our family of businesses working together as one unified business to achieve even greater things.”
