Aston Lark announces expansion of UK footprint through two new regional offices

By Aston Lark

Leading insurance broker Aston Lark, a Howden company, is expanding its UK footprint by opening two new regional offices, providing additional in-person support for clients and more opportunities for employees and emerging talent.

“We remain committed to establishing and maintaining mutually beneficial and sustainable partnerships with our clients, to help them mitigate risk and achieve their goals.

“And while technology enhancements have made it possible to service client needs from anywhere, we believe there’s still no substitute for having our people on the ground and embedded in the communities we continue to support every day”, says Warren Dickson, Aston Lark UK Managing Director.

The new offices will be in South Wales and the Thames Valley, where Aston Lark will seek to secure top insurance talent to continue its rapid growth.

In April 2022, Aston Lark became part of Howden, the international insurance broking group, with the aim of creating a standout full-service broker, unrivalled in its quality, scale and reach in the UK and Ireland.

The creation of this unique business means a range of opportunities for current employees, as well as new talent, as Aston Lark helps to build towards becoming the biggest and best British broker, while remaining true to the values that have helped it to thrive and succeed.

“While our business has changed over the years, as we have grown in headcount and capability, our core value of client care has always been a constant.

“Which is why, from a recruitment perspective, one of our key areas of focus in these regions, and others, will be account executive and account handler support, to provide that all-important hands-on help and guidance”, says Mr Dickson.

Aston Lark achieved industry recognition for its commitment to develop and nurture internal talent when in 2021 it received the Investing in the Profession / Training Award at the British Insurance Awards as well as the Training Award at the UK Broker Awards, and again in 2022 when it was named Best Insurance Employer (Large) at the Insurance Post Best Insurance Employers 2022 Awards.
