Have to admit we missed this expansion news from earlier in April, but good luck to McClarrons. Here’s the word from their website;
We are delighted to announce that we are opening an office in Hull – here, we delve into the McClarrons family history in Hull, touch on our growth plans and introduce you to our new offices.
Next week, on Wednesday 20th April, we will be opening our brand-new office at Hesslewood Office Park on Ferriby Road. As McClarrons continues to expand and our ambitions to grow and provide our insurance services and proposition further afield continue, we have taken the decision to open an office in Hessle. This will not only help us to service our existing Commercial, Rural, Care and Private Clients in and around the Hull area, but also allow us to offer our specialist insurance advice and decades of expertise to prospective clients operating in these sectors.
McClarron history in Hull
The McClarron family name is already intrinsically linked with the city, with our Executive Chairman, Sean McClarron’s, own family ties to Hull.
Sean’s Great Uncle and Aunt, Roy and Rita McClarron, doted on their nephew (Sean’s father) – also called Roy – this close relationship led to years of Sean and his father taking regular trips to Hull to visit them. Great Uncle Roy and Rita ran a Fruit Merchant business at 3 Wellington Street; they ran this business shortly after World War II and into the 70’s and you can see pictures of the Wellington Street business, Rita and Roy attending the Fruit Merchants’ Banquet and Roy at the fruit market, below – there’s even a picture of a purchase slip for the McClarron business that’s been saved all these years on. Since then, Hull has seen a huge renovation of the whole Fruit Market area, which now consists of an array of unique independent businesses.
We believe that our new office on Hesslewood Park provides a desirable working environment with plenty of outdoor green space for lunchtime walks, a gym for those who like to get a workout in before work and a locally-supplied deli for lunches and Friday treats – not to mention the resident peacocks…
We have worked closely with Brooklands Property Holdings to renovate the office space, allowing us to provide a bright, stylish and open working environment. The office also has its own private kitchen with modern facilities and a balcony overlooking the green, allowing the team to make the most of their lunchtime break. Whilst we do offer hybrid-working options, we are conscious that time spent in the office is still important and an open, collaborative working environment is key. We also understand that not everyone is served best by working at home – we hope that these offices will enable our Hull-based team to thrive and look forward to welcoming new recruits in the area to also benefit from this space as we look to expand here.
