An independent insurance broking and risk management specialist that opened an office less than a year ago in Cockermouth has expanded with a further new appointment. Heather Wood has joined TL Dallas, which also plans to recruit several new team members over the coming years, as well as offering apprenticeships to young people in the local area.
Heather will work alongside experienced insurance brokers, Lynne Taylor, Emma Irving and Philip Jackson, and in total the four brokers have over 130 years combined industry experience specialising in general commercial insurance and agricultural business insurance.
Heather has worked in the insurance industry for more than 30 years, but most recently worked at a family business based in Cockermouth. Philip Jackson said: “Heather is a former colleague and we’re delighted and privileged that she has decided to re-join the industry and to work with the three of us again. She will be a huge asset to our business.”
Lynne Taylor added: “Heather believes that a strong community presence and a local service is of the upmost importance to all businesses in Cumbria, which fits perfectly with our values at TL Dallas.”
All four industry stalwarts previously worked for many years at C H Jeffries, which was the largest independent insurance broker in Cumbria, before it was acquired by a national firm and went through several mergers and subsequent acquisitions.
