First Title Office Relocation to Shape Core Business Structure

July 23, 2007, LONDON

First Title Insurance plc (First Title) has signalled its expansion plans with a move to exclusive new offices in the city of London.

The move, which will bring all aspects of the commercial business—the underwriting, sales and operational support teams—under one roof for the first time, is designed to provide First Title’s commercial clients with even better levels of service as a result of enhanced internal communication. In addition to the consolidation of the core European business services, First Title will have the advantage of increased proximity to key accounts and potential business. 

The Residential and Specialist Insurance Products team will continue to operate from First Title’s Bromley office, with increased office space allowing for greater expansion within this division.

David Hawkins, managing director of First Title, says, “This office move is exciting on so many levels; not only are we relocating to exclusive offices in one of the most dynamic insurance hubs in the world, but we are using the move to further define the core sectors within our business. By uniting all aspects of the commercial division for the first time, we can confidently offer our clients a continually evolving proposition, while increasingly focussing on new business opportunities. The Residential and Specialist Insurance Products division, meanwhile, will focus exclusively on its own business development. With high-profile appointments and innovative business plans in the pipeline, the rest of 2007 looks very promising.”
