Carlisle-based Raw Insurance has announced its plans to open an office in south Cumbria later this year and create more job opportunities, continuing its expansion into the region.
Established by Ryan Roberts and Stephen Ward three years ago, the company has more than 500 clients and operates across the whole of the UK.
As part of its expansion plans, Raw appointed Russell Linton to head up its new south Cumbrian operation covering Kendal, South Lakes, Ulverston and Barrow.
Linton said: “Having lived and worked in Kendal and south Cumbria all my life, clients know that I understand the area and the local economy. They know I’m there to help and advise them, and that I’m visible and contactable.
“Insurance can be seen as a dry topic but it’s about people, which is what I love about it. I enjoy working with clients, learning about their businesses and finding them the right insurance.”
Stephen Ward added: “Russell’s experience in the industry and his people-first approach fits perfectly with the way we work. We feel it’s important that we deliver the best service to our clients, while also creating a relaxed, friendly environment where we know clients by name, not policy numbers.”
