New partnership hopes to benefit the Leicestershire community

Two well-renowned Leicestershire businesses are set to be working together; business insurance provider Berkeley Insurance Group will be working with Leicester Racecourse. Both companies have decided to team up with each other in order to bring a new, dynamic level to the way they work within their local community.

Berkeley Insurance Group will be providing various insurance services for Leicester Racecourse and both companies are very keen to enhance the business community within Leicester. Collaborating with organisations within Leicester is something that Leicester Racecourse are highly passionate about, which is one of the reasons they chose Berkeley Insurance Group as their insurance broker.

Leicester Racecourse General Manager Rob Bracken says: “We are delighted to be working with such a prestigious and well-known local insurance company. Working with local companies is very important to us here at Leicester Racecourse and we look forward to developing not only this long term partnership, but also building relationships with other local organisations. The Berkeley Insurance Group staff are all very personable and wanted to get involved, so they were a great fit for us.”

Both organisations are keen to forge partnerships within the Leicestershire area. Speaking about the new partnership with Leicester Racecourse, Berkeley Insurance Group CEO Tim Maxted explains why: “It’s really important to our business to be working with and supporting key local companies. To us winning a prestigious client like Leicester Racecourse is not just about us providing great insurance – it is about how we can work together to provide benefits to our two organisations and the wider local economy. If we can in any way help our clients become more successful, that also pays dividends for our own growth.”

Corporate Account Director at Berkeley Insurance Group Sean Naylor adds: “Arranging a visit to the racecourse for Underwriters on a race day enabled us to demonstrate not only the wide range of activities at first hand, but also the strong risk management in place. Working together with Rob and his team, we were then able to secure a great insurance package, improving cover and reducing costs.”

With two highly-respected and established businesses working together within the Leicestershire area, it is hoped that both Berkeley Insurance Group and Leicester Racecourse’s relationship can continue to fuel economic growth to the community.
