The UK’s leading travel insurance provider Staysure has been named Business of the Year at the coveted 2017 Finance Awards.
Shortlisted alongside some the country’s most successful companies such as Sainsbury’s, Argos, Avon Cosmetics, TUI Holidays, EasyJet and Pitney Bowes, the over 50’s insurance and financial services specialist reigned supreme with judges commending the Northampton based business on its impressive growth in the last year, employee and customer engagement and contribution to the regional economy as a major employer.
Staysure Chairman, Ryan Howsam, said; “Since 2004 we’ve won in excess of 25 awards, nine of which in 2016 alone and the latest is a testament to our 500 extraordinary colleagues who work tirelessly to serve the half a million customers who insure with us every year.”
“We take great pride in being the UK’s leading travel insurance provider but there’s even more satisfaction in going up against some of the country’s biggest names and beating them to be named Business of the Year. 2017 will undoubtedly be a landmark year for Staysure as we look to evolve the company and I’m confident that we’ll soon need a much larger trophy cabinet…joked Ryan.”
The Finance Awards, which are supported by the ICAEW, promote and celebrate the outstanding achievements of businesses and individuals within Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Hertfordshire and Essex.
Janine Blacksley, Associate Director at Robert Walters, commented; “We are delighted to name Staysure as Business of the Year. The quality of entries was exceptionally high and choosing a winner was very challenging.”
“Staysure distinguished themselves as one of the fastest growing companies in Northamptonshire with huge year-on-year growth, having previously won several awards for customer satisfaction and having been ranked as the number 1 travel insurance brand in the UK.”
“In addition to the outstanding service they offer their customers, Staysure has also shown a commitment to offering an exceptional workplace to their staff, in addition to boosting the economy of the local area by creating 500 new jobs.”
“For a company only founded in 2004 they have achieved exceptional growth. Julian and Chris demonstrated themselves to be inspirational leaders with a passion and drive for growing and diversifying their brand, providing an exceptional workplace and delivering first class services to their customers.”
