Brunel Group expanded further into the southwest today (Monday 20 June) with the opening of their Newton Abbot office.

Fittingly situated in the Kingdom Business Centre on Brunel Road, Brunel continue to build on their strong national presence and are excited to extend their reach in Newton Abbot while maintaining a local, personal service. Formally based in Bovey Tracey, their re-location in the southwest aligns perfectly with their business plans, allowing them to service existing clients in the area while expanding their team and client base.

The Group aim to double the size of their Newton Abbot team in the coming months, which promises to provide employment opportunities for the local community and are already recruiting new insurance professionals to join them.

Group CEO Russell Lane is proud to see the company take this latest stride. He commented, We have invested throughout the pandemic to support our clients and have seen rapid growth. Now, we are delighted to re-locate our Bovey Tracey office to Newton Abbot offering a more accessible location for many of our southwest clients. We are excited to be providing more job opportunities and expanding our client base in the southwest with this move. Our team are also looking forward to getting involved with local charities and support the wider community.”

The Newton Abbot office will be headed up by Director Dave Brown, who is excited by the re-location. He said “This move brings us closer the Teignbridge business community that I have been working with for the last 27 years. It improves our accessibility for existing clients and visibility to prospective clients. We are very much looking forward to taking this next step and seeing the company progress further.”
