The insurance broker Verlingue is setting up its 13th regional office in Bordeaux
A new player in the insurance brokerage market has just been added to the Bordeaux hub, the third largest insurance brokerage marketplace in France.
Verlingue, based in Quimper and very active in the West, North, Ile-de-France, Greater East and South-West, is one of the French leaders in insurance broking for businesses.
Its job is to help executives protect their companies from the risks linked to their business and their employees.
With its 2000 clients comprising key accounts, SMEs and midcaps, the Breton broker has expertise in consultancy, negotiation and risk management.
A strategic move…
With offices already in 12 French cities and 3 in Great Britain, Verlingue has reinforced its presence in our region since May 2016 with its recent arrival in the Southwest.
Bordeaux naturally stood out as an opportunity to get closer to the clients of the region and join a “business friendly” economic environment.
The aim is to recruit roughly ten new employees in Bordeaux in the next 3-5 years.
…to pursue development in France and internationally.
The entrepreneurial spirit is written in the DNA of this business which has developed thanks to both organic growth and its acquisitions since its creation in 1933.
With 700 staff members and a turnover of €122 million in 2015, the ambition of the family group is to become the leading regional broker by 2018.
Internationally, Verlingue supports its clients in more than 100 countries with its partners from WBN (Worldwide Broker Network), the top international network of independent brokers. Verlingue is also partner of the Entrepreneur of the Year prize organized by E&Y.
With its knowledge of the regional economic environment, Invest in Bordeaux assisted Verlingue’s project by putting the insurance broker in contact with local economic actors.
