The County Group – incorporating County Insurance Consultants – recently held an employee conference at Crewe Hall to celebrate the company’s rapid growth over the past ten years’and the successful acquisition of JSW Insurance Services Ltd.
The conference took place on Saturday 5th October and provided an excellent opportunity to discuss the company’s performance over the last decade and to reveal plans for future development with all 150 staff members.
The day began with a short presentation outlining key achievements in The County Groups history as well as details of our future aims and objectives. This was then followed by a meal, drinks and overnight stay at Crewe Hall in Cheshire to reward staff for their hard work and commitment to the company.
Since the current management team took over in 2003, The County Group has experienced many successes. This has included opening 7 new branches across the North West, developing an extensive product range, rewards from organisations like the East Cheshire Chamber and the recent acquisition of JSW Insurance Services based in Newcastle-under-Lyme.
The County Group now plan to continue with this level of growth and to further expand their personal and commercial insurance client base through opening more officies and offering face-to-face service.

Referring to the conference, current owner and Managing Director, Dave Clapp said:
“With the rate of expansion we have experienced over the past couple of years, I feel that the conference provided an excellent opportunity for staff from all branches to get to know each other. So far, this has had a positive effect on team building and ensuring that all offices work together as a whole.”
“Following the acquisition of JSW we have a very strong platform in which to grow our business and expand our private and commercial client bases even further. A wide range of new opportunities now exist for the County Group and with JSW well on the way to being bedded in, it is only a question of time before we take on our next challenge.”
