Brit announces move to new London headquarters

17-02-2016

Brit Limited (“Brit”), the global specialty insurer, is delighted to announce that it has now completed its move to The Leadenhall Building on Leadenhall Street, London EC3V. The lease, which has been agreed with developer British Land, is for approximately 60,000 sq ft of office space over the 16th, 17th, 18th, 39th and 40th floors.

The five floors include a dedicated broker area, extensive facilities for employees, board and client meeting rooms, a games area and a library.

In keeping with Brit’s outlook, “seeing the difference makes the difference”, the office has been designed to foster conditions for collaboration, between both employees and clients, through the creation of various break-out areas and the construction of two state-of-the-art staircases connecting different floors. Brit hopes the new office, opposite the home of the UK insurance market, Lloyd’s, will bring brokers and underwriters closer together in a modern yet inviting environment, with unrivalled views of the City.

Lorraine Denny, Group Human Resources Director and Director of Corporate Services at Brit who led the project, commented: “A great deal of thought has gone into making the new Leadenhall office the best possible environment to work in for both our employees and guests. We are hugely excited about the office we have created, which we believe is modern, professional and innovative, making it a space clients will want to come to and our employees will want to work in.”

Mark Cloutier, CEO at Brit, added: “We are delighted that the Leadenhall building will become our new permanent London office this year. This was a carefully considered choice which fits with all of the strategic objectives set out when we began the process of selection for a new location. Innovation is at the heart of Brit and the new office will help us to be more imaginative, effective and productive.”
