Auckland-headquartered Delta Insurance has opened a new office in Papamoa in the Bay of Plenty, following its international expansion into Singapore and Australia. 

Located in the Tauranga suburb, the central region office serves the Bay of Plenty, Waikato and Hawkes Bay regions, hosting local underwriters looking after brokers and clients in towns and cities across the districts.

Delta Insurance NZ CEO Andrew Beaton said the firm was not a newcomer to the North Island. 

“As a born and bred New Zealand company, local business is our mainstay and we’ve addressed the regions very well from our Auckland headquarters, and more recently for the South Island with the introduction of the Christchurch office.

“More specifically, in the Central North Island, a work-from-home underwriting team has operated out of Tauranga for nearly a decade, with Amy Gillum and Kyle Steven having written considerable business across the Bay of Plenty, Hawkes Bay and the Waikato.”

Beaton said a critical mass in the central North Island justified the move.

“In addition to the new premises, we expect to add additional underwriters and support people in due course, matching the expansion of our product portfolio with talented individuals who can help brokers meet the insurance needs of their business customers.”
