New member of the team
A family-run insurance company in Shropshire has expanded its services after taking on a new member of staff to cope with growing demand.
Beaumont Lawrence, based in Shrewsbury, last year celebrated its 40th anniversary and is now pushing ahead with plans to develop the business –including launching a new website and social media network for clients in the near future.
Daniel Butler, 34, started at the firm, which is the only company in Shropshire to have been awarded the prestigious Chartered Insurance Brokers title, in June as an account handler.
He has a Diploma in Insurance and is expected to receive his Advanced Diploma in Insurance (ACII) this month, meaning he will become an associate of the Chartered Institute of Insurance.
Mr Butler has lived and worked in Shrewsbury his whole life and comes to Beaumont Lawrence with a wealth of experience after nine years working for another local firm.
“I came to Beaumont Lawrence for career progression and I wanted to work for somewhere local as well,” he said. “I’m looking forward to developing the role and building on my skills and knowledge.”
Ben Lawrence, managing director of Beaumont Lawrence, which works with businesses across Shropshire and beyond, said he was thrilled to welcome Mr Butler to his expanding team.
He said: “We hired Daniel because he is obviously technically able and has worked in the local area. He’s a Shrewsbury lad.
“This is an expansion for our firm and part of our succession planning as we want to keep new blood coming through to keep moving forward in the insurance world.”
Beaumont Lawrence is keen to support the local economy and recently was one of the top sponsors for the Shrewsbury Grand Prix, held on May 25.
Both Ben and Dan are members of the Paramount Cycling Racing Team, which organised the event, and saw thousands of people turn up to support the riders, which including Olympic Gold Medalist Joanna Rowsell.
