Norwich-based insurance broker Hugh J Boswell is expanding south in East Anglia by opening a second office in Bury in September.
The first new recruit to join the Bury branch will be account executive Joanne Hocking, joining from the Suffolk branch of insurance intermediary Towergate.
She will be helping to continue the growth of the firm’s community broking division.
Ms Hocking said: “I am very much looking forward to co-ordinating the growth of Hugh J Boswell’s Bury St Edmunds office and the exciting opportunities ahead.”
In business since 1906, the independent firm now caters to clients nationwide.
Managing director Peter Foster said: “We have been keen to develop a base in Bury St Edmunds for some time so that we are nearer to our clients in Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex.”
