The story of Park began nearly 50 years ago, in 1973 when the business was established. David joined the business in 1988 as a motor and home insurance administrator.
During the Nineties, we acquired Belmont Insurance Brokers and Thomson Ferguson Insurance Brokers, as well as launching our commercial division with the express purpose of looking after our business and commercial clients.
In 2000 David took over leadership of the company and becoming managing partner. Following David’s appointment, we spent most of the first decade of the new century growing the business and supporting our clients.
However, in 2009, we decided it was time for a rebrand and a refocus, becoming Park Commercial and dedicating ourselves to our clients in the commercial and business insurance field.
It was onwards and upwards from then on, and, in 2017 we achieved record trading results.
We reinvested our profits into launching our Future Leaders Development Programme, supporting our staff and working to support the long-term development of the company. On top of this, in 2019 we created our dedicated new business team, as well as launching our very own small business unit.
Fast forward to last year, and we weren’t going to let a global pandemic stop us – turnover was up, smashing our previous results, and we expanded our team to 16 members of staff.
Which brings us to now – and the Park story is far from over.
In fact, we think it’s going to be the most exciting chapter yet, with plans to invest £500,000 in new technology, along with the move to a new home, which will be big enough for all the new team members we’re planning on welcoming over the next 12 months.
We’re also planning to keep investing in our fantastic team, and fully expect to hit our target of £10m turnover in the years to come – so watch this space…..
