Lincolnshire insurance broker gears up for growth with office move

An independent insurance broking and risk management specialist that launched in Lincolnshire last year is expanding after relocating to new offices and the company now plans to create six new jobs.

TL Dallas, which has 11 UK offices, expanded into Lincolnshire at the end of 2021, launching Dallas Scott Davey with experienced insurance professionals, Ed Davey and Darren Scott, who have 45 years combined industry experience.

Dallas Scott Davey offers specialist agricultural and business insurance and has now relocated to Plowright House, which is the University of Lincoln’s former agricultural campus within its Riseholme Estate. Today Plowright House is a Barclays Eagle Labs office hub with a focus on cutting-edge AgriTech research and related businesses.

The company now has a team of three in Lincoln and plans to triple in size over the next 18 months, recruiting six new account handlers and brokers.

Ed Davey, director at Dallas Scott Davey, said: “In a short space of time we’ve quickly established a strong client base across a wide area, with our core business being in Lincolnshire and Yorkshire.

“Farming is experiencing significant challenges across all sectors, not least due to agri-inflation. Steering a course for the businesses and building the right strategy needs more careful attention than ever before. Ultimately farms and associated businesses are having to balance cost versus risk and our specialist industry knowledge and ability to provide a bespoke service is proving very popular.

“Expanding into new premises within the University of Lincoln’s former agricultural campus, which is now home to a wide range of businesses at the forefront of the farming industry, is the perfect address for a specialist agricultural insurance broker.”

Polly Staveley, Managing Director at TL Dallas, said: “Ed and Darren are very experienced and genuinely strive to offer their clients the best products and advice possible and will negotiate hard on their behalf, so we knew they’d be a great fit for TL Dallas.

“Putting their names over the door and launching Dallas Scott Davey is a great way to bolster our business and service offerings in new areas, whilst giving experienced industry stalwarts the opportunity to be shareholders in the business.”

The Lincoln expansion is part of a hat-trick of office moves for Yorkshire-headquartered TL Dallas this year. The company has also relocated its London office to 14 Devonshire Square, in the City of London, close to Liverpool Street Station. In addition, the company’s North Yorkshire office recently expanded to Asquith Business Park in Gargrave near Skipton.
