Despite the national pandemic lockdown an award-winning firm of insurance brokers is continuing to recruit new members to the team.

Gravity Risk Services Ltd has continued to operate throughout the coronavirus lockdown.

The latest recruit, Craig Acklam, has joined the company’s Leicester branch from Tasker Insurance Services.

The 52-year-old is the new senior account executive and has more than 30 years’ experience in the business.

He said: “It’s a very strange time for everyone at the moment but I’m delighted to be joining Gravity Risk Services Ltd. I started one week into lockdown but it’s been a very busy time for us which is good news for the business.”

Craig brings an expertise in a range of business sectors including manufacturing, construction and engineering.

Richard Gibson, Director of Gravity Risk Services Ltd, said:

“We’ve worked hard to be able to continue providing the very best advice and support to all of our clients. Craig’s appointment will help us continue that and we’re delighted to have him on board.

“I guess it’s unusual to be recruiting during a national lockdown, but we’re determined to make sure that we continue to grow the business, whatever life throws at us.

“I’ve worked with Craig in the past, with Towergate  for over seven years, so I know what Craig has to offer and am delighted we have him onboard.”

Staff at Gravity Risk Services Ltd are continuing to operate normal business and are running a range of ‘face-to-face’ consultations via video link or social distance face to face meetings.
