Due to continued growth the Airsports Insurance Bureau team are pleased to welcome new addition Tom Hopkins to its personal lines Executive team. Tom has been recruited as one of our Senior Insurance Consultants and will be responsible for ensuring both our new and existing clients get the very best service.
Tom has spent the last couple of years at Turners Insurance in Botley, Hampshire and has an excellent background providing insurance solutions to both commercial and personal clients, particularly property related insurance products.
Tom had this to say on his appointment:
“As soon as I spoke to AIB I knew it was the perfect opportunity for me to progress further within the insurance industry locally. I appreciate that insurance can be a ‘necessary evil’ at times and I like to assist client’s in ‘taking the pain’ out of the Insurance Purchase and making sure they get a quality product designed around their needs.”
Tom lives in Locks Heath supporting his local Premier League Football club, Southampton FC. He is a keen poker player and will often attend tournaments throughout the south of England. Tom considers himself well travelled and the three people he’d like to invite to his ‘perfect’ dinner party would be former professional boxer Carl Froch MBE, Liverpool FC legend Steven Gerrard and TV royalty, Ross Kemp.

AIB Insurance has been in operation for over 20 years during which time we have grown in so many ways. For instance, we have progressively increased the number of insurance partners on our extensive panel providing our valued personal and business customers with access to a larger, more comprehensive range of insurance products resulting in them having a greater opportunity to obtain competitively priced, quality insurance cover.
This has resulted in a significant increase in the number of customers that we look after on a daily basis. That meant it has been necessary to recruit additional staff to provide our bigger customer base with the outstanding level of service that they have come to expect from us. You only have to take a look at our News section where we introduce our clients and business partners to our carefully selected newly appointed staff members to see what we mean.
Of course, those new staff and the additional office furniture and equipment that they needed have taken up more space meaning that we were outgrowing our current accommodation and required further room. As a result, we are pleased to inform you that we have been able to increase our office space but without having to move from our current location as the premises next door became available and we have signed a new lease.
At the present time, we are having building works carried out around us such as the removal of walls between both sets of offices to create one large premises. We will retain our current address. When the works are completed, we will have doubled the floor area that will also have the capacity to comfortably cope with our anticipated steady growth in the future.
We would just like to take this opportunity to thank our clients, insurer partners, advertising and marketing friends as well as our staff for bearing with us during the alterations. We can assure you all that it is “business as usual” here at AIB Insurance so feel free to continue to give us a call or pop into the office to discuss your insurance requirements.
