Newport Company Fiveways Insurance Celebrates 50 Years in Business

Newport Company Fiveways Insurance Celebrates 50 Years in Business

| by Editor | Posted in Telford News, Telford Business

Fiveways Insurance, which has offices in Newport and Stafford, is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and managers say they have never been busier.

Nigel West, managing director, said: “This year has been very busy which has led to the expansion of the team.

“We are delighted to welcome a new commercial account manager to Fiveways, as we develop our business insurance offering to clients across Shropshire and Staffordshire.

“We work with a wide range of businesses providing everything from commercial property insurance to motor fleet insurance, so growing our commercial team will enable us to continue providing our first-class customer services to even more clients.”

Nigel added: “We have also appointed a very experienced account handler to support our New Business development, who actually began her working career with us originally 31 years ago!

“She has a fantastic knowledge of the insurance market and that experience will be hugely beneficial for our clients.

And most recently we have appointed a new apprentice to support our very busy personal insurance team in Newport.” 

The company prides itself on giving young people a chance to succeed. The apprentice will be trained to the industry standard, studying towards Chartered Insurance Institute qualifications as well as undertaking a Business Administration Level 2 Apprenticeship.

Young people are the future of any business and Fiveways Insurance want to support the apprenticeship scheme.

Nigel added: “It will be very demanding work for our new apprentice but working on the job is the best way to learn valuable skills. The insurance industry can provide a fantastic career, and we like to think Fiveways is a great company to work for - we are a family-run firm and a really friendly team.”

The main focus of the 50th year celebrations will be a charity partnership with Kidney Research UK, which is a charity close to the hearts of Nigel and Lisa West, the owners of Fiveways.

Nigel said: “Lisa needed a kidney transplant in 2015 so we are acutely aware of the importance of medical research in this area.

 “We are hoping to raise as much as we can for a variety of good causes while celebrating what is a significant milestone for us as a business.

“When Fiveways was established 50 years ago, the world was quite a different place, but many of our values have remained the same - providing excellent customer service with a first-rate knowledge of the insurance industry.

“We are delighted to be marking our 50th year of trading with an expanding team of dedicated individuals and a variety of activities - all centred around supporting and rewarding our loyal clients and raising money for good causes.”
