An independent commercial insurance provider has been living up to its name after success at a major regional business awards ceremony.
Inspire Insurance has received the People Excellence award at FirstPro 2019, the annual awards run by Coventry & Warwickshire First, after displaying significant commitment to the development of professional talent within their business.
Business leaders from across Coventry and Warwickshire gathered at Coombe Abbey Hotel as prizes were handed out at the FirstPro awards, which are held annually to showcase a range of achievements within the region’s professional services sector.
The company, based on the Middlemarch Business Park, took home the award after demonstrating how its staff are given the platform to succeed, and for displaying successful investment in professional development and teambuilding.
The accolade comes just six years after Leigh Mackey, Managing Director of Inspire Insurance, was named FirstPro Young Professional of the year in 2013.
The company, founded by Mackey less than a decade ago, now has a team of 23 and an annual turnover of £5 million.
He said: “We are always looking to grow as a team and as a business, and we are succeeding in doing so by constantly bringing in and nurturing new talent.”
“As someone who has worked their way up from a standing start, to have won in this category is particularly pleasing. We put a lot of work into ensuring our people have the best possible path to success available to them.”
“We are committed to inspiring Coventry’s next generation of industry professionals, and we are all thrilled to have been recognised for our work.”
“This award marks a fantastic period of growth for Inspire Insurance, and we are focussed on continuing on that trend of development.”
“I’d like to thank our team for their hard work over the last year. Their willingness to learn and adapt and to support others has been phenomenal, and I’m looking forward to more of the same over the next 12 months.”
