Three offices of an insurance business in Derbyshire have merged.

NFU Mutual offices in Ashbourne, Bakewell and Chapel-en-le-Frith have joined forces to create a new agency – NFU Mutual Derbyshire Peaks. The new agency has retained the offices and staff in each of the towns.

The new Derbyshire Peaks Agency will be run by local agents Paul Cook, Philip Burnip, Ben Hiles and Trish Winterbottom.

Burnip said: “We are confident that our new, larger agency will offer a wealth of benefits to local people and businesses. We have already recruited a number of new staff members to help us to continue to provide a bespoke, personal customer service. We are of course still committed to assisting our agricultural businesses but have both the scope and expertise to work with a wider cross-section of organisations, in particular those within the hospitality and engineering sectors.”
