BELFAST-based independent corporate insurance broker Willis & Co has opened a new office in Coleraine, creating six consultant posts. It is part of the company's bid to drive further growth in the north west as well as exporting in the republic. "This is an exciting time for the business and we have set a bold target for future sales development," said Richard Willis, managing director of the family-run business, which employs 60 staff. "We've been providing a professional yet personal, brokerage and insurance consultancy service to clients for more than 35 years and we aim is to promote this service to a wider market."
