Felling-based commercial insurance brokerage Talbot Jones Risk Solutions has achieved CII Corporate Chartered status.
The family-run firm, which specialises in supporting the third sector, shares this accolade with just two other northeast insurance brokers. Chartered status reflects the company's sustained commitment to continuing professional development, high ethical standards and excellent customer focus.
Managing director Richard Talbot-Jones, who serves on the Insurance Institute of Newcastle upon Tyne's board and is himself a Chartered insurance broker, said: "We are absolutely delighted to gain this recognition and to be part of raising the profile of high standards in the profession within the region."
Business development director, Clare Talbot-Jones, added: "It's such a great achievement for our town, Gateshead, which is now home to two of the region's three Chartered Insurance Brokers. The northeast is a fantastic place to start up and develop an exciting business."
Talbot Jones Risk Solutions launched three years ago and specialises in supporting charities, social enterprises and professions with insurance and risk management advice.
