Award Winning Firm Set to Double in Size

Thursday, March 19 2015

Business is booming for an award-winning Black Country firm of insurance brokers which is almost doubling its workforce as part of plans to double turnover in two years.

Gravity Risk Services, based in Dudley, is taking on three new members of staff over the next month.

Nicola Congrave has been recruited as Sales and Marketing Manager. She will head up the firm’s drive to increase its current £1.4million book of business to £2million by the end of the year.

The firm has also taken on an additional sales consultant and a telemarketing executive.

It’s a meteoric rise for the firm inside its first two years of trading, after winning Broker of the Year in the prestigious West Midlands Insurance Institutes Awards 2014, at the end of last year.

The company joined the Black Country Chamber of Commerce at the end of last year as it looks to target local firms to help them with their insurance needs.

The company also scored 97.6 in their last compliance audit, reinforcing its high quality reputation in the industry.

Dale Collett, director and founder of Gravity Risk Services, said:

“We are a maturing company, but we have set ourselves clear goals including doubling the size of the company in two years and looking to trade with more businesses locally, so that we increase our presence as a Black Country community broker.

“Our excellent results in the recent compliance audit show that we’re not just about growth, but about delivering a high quality service for our customers too.

“We focus on recruiting like-minded individuals who share our vision and values. The new staff are quality individuals who are driven to achieve shared goals.”

The business started life in a home garage in February 2013. Last year the firm beat strong industry competition to secure the Broker of the Year award, at a glitzy ceremony at the Mail Box in Birmingham at the end of October.

It marked the end of a hugely successful year for the company which has expanded its workforce and seen its client base swell to over 170.
