It has been an extremely busy year for the team at Reich Insurance Brokers, based on Chapel Street in Salford. With a 12 per cent increase in headcount this year alone, and the company about to recruit their 100th member of staff this week, CEO Simon Taylor is clearly confident about the future prospects of the industry and growth opportunities within the market too.
Indeed Taylor, along with longstanding Chairman Danny Lopian, is so confident that Manchester is the place to be for aspiring brokers, that they have recently purchased the adjacent building to their office; a move which will more than double the space Reich currently occupies to just under 10,000 square feet.
“As our workforce continues to increase, we realise that we need more space so we can continue to expand. This will enable us to do so,” said Simon Taylor, CEO, Reich Group of Companies.
With intensive renovation work expecting to last another 6 months, the new ‘Reich House’ will be a welcome addition to the local area; Salford particularly is now benefiting from other huge investments locally, such as the New Bailey development, which opens this month.
Reich Insurance Brokers certainly has a lot to celebrate this year with a Downtown in Business accolade for Business of the Month in May, shortly being followed by their first ever nomination for Business of the Year at July’s magnificent City of Manchester Business Awards.
In July Reich was also inducted into the prestigious Insurance Post Top 50 Brokers list for the first time in it’s history – evidence that hard work from a committed team and strategic, long term vision in the face of challenging economic conditions will always reap it’s rewards.
Clearly it’s onwards and upwards for Reich, as well as many other ambitious companies within this incredible city. Evidence we are sure, that the spirit of the Northern Powerhouse will continue for some time to come.
