Commercial Express celebrates 20 years of success as business goes from strength to strength

DATE: 17/06/2019

Celebrations are in order, as Commercial Express turns 20 years old this year. This is a huge milestone for the firm, which has enjoyed continued success despite the difficult economic climate.

Commercial Express has gone from strength to strength throughout the last two decades and the firm has remained one of the few independent Managing General Agents in the UK.

Founded in 1999 by managing director Duncan Pritchard alongside Sarah Pritchard, Commercial Express came from humble beginnings with just Duncan and another colleague. Progression led to the company then being based in Castlegate Way, Dudley, with around 20 employees.

Thanks to financial growth, a new headquarters was established on The Waterfront, Brierley Hill, in 2014, where it has made its home for the last five years.

Commercial Express now has a workforce of more than 50 employees, with business success being credited to hard-working staff.

Managing director Duncan Pritchard said: “I am extremely proud of everything that Commercial Express has achieved over the last 20 years.

“We have expanded considerably and at a time when other industries are crashing, we are achieving continued success. Nothing is possible without our skilled professionals who provide an excellent customer service."

Commercial Express is currently the only MGA to offer its very own online learning hub. CE Learning: Online, launched earlier this year, is a platform encompassing free training courses for CE insurance brokers.
