Reich Group - Awards Dinner, December 2017.


On Friday 8th December members of the Reich family, along with some special guests, were yet again invited to the magnificent Hilton Hotel in Manchester, marking another year of significant growth for Reich Group.

The evening started with a review of 2017 from CEO Simon Taylor, highlighting the successful year gone by and the ambitious plans for 2018.

Concluding his motivational talk, Simon then ran through some of the rising stars of the Reich family – resulting in prizes, trophies and more importantly, the crowning of our second ever Employee of the Year, Lucy Millar (Finance), with Kevin Mitchell (Commercial) handing over reigns.


Lucy Millar, Senior Account Handler (Finance) scoops the 2017 Employee of the Year award!

Congratulations to Lucy Millar, Employee of the Year 2017!

Mike Prophet, Head of Finance commented:

Lucy epitomises exactly what the Finance team are all about, being as helpful to our own staff as she is with both clients and insurers alike.

From the smaller clients to our largest insurer partner, Lucy deals with both in the same professional and supportive manner and is a true asset to Reich.



Longstanding ‘Reichian’ Paul Mather, Deputy Head of Broking scoops the Above & Beyond award for 2017, for his commitment to client excellence and ongoing involvement in our cross-departmental project team, otherwise known as the G10.

Congratulations to Paul Mather, Above and Beyond Award 2017!

James Baskeyfield, Head of Broking commented:

Paul is one of Reich’s longest serving employees and his commitment both to our clients and to the company is as strong now as it was on day one.  

He is a credit to the company, a great asset to the team and this award is just deserves for his continued hard work. Paul is also the person who has worked the longest period of time with Simon, bar none, basically straight from school.


Additional awards for length of service…

Additional awards during the evening recognised the efforts of a number of ‘Reichians’ who received a special mention for their length of service at Reich.


Jo Smith, Senior Technical Claims & Service Manager – congratulations for an outstanding 30 years of service!


Kevin Hurrell, Senior Account Manager, Commercial – congratulations again for another member of the Reich family hitting an incredible 30 years service. Well done Kevin!


Capping another year of growth for Reich Group, Simon Taylor, CEO commented:

2017 has been one of the busiest years, I personally, and Reich have ever known. We are in an exciting stage of development and growth, and in 2018 we’re expecting to see the investment in such come to fruition.

We have so many talented and skilled people within our 100+ staff, many of which deserve awards for their commitment and loyal work, but it is also nice to recognise some of the star performers of the year during the staff awards. Well done again to those who won.

Onwards and upwards!


With the benchmark for 2018 staff performance being clearly laid down, the rest of Reich Group were then treated to an outstanding meal, with drinks and entertainment well into the night.

A fantastic evening was had by all, in no small part due to the hard work behind the scenes from the Reich G10 team and of course, the event organisers from the Hilton.

Now the hard work begins for 2018 and we are relishing it!

Onwards and upwards.


2016 Employee of the Year Kevin Mitchell congratulates this year’s overall winner, Lucy Millar.
