Malaga mayor opens new office for UK business
British claims management firm, Stanton Fisher, officially opened its new Malaga office on Monday, the first step in its expansion outside the UK.
The mayor of Malaga, Francisco de la Torre, attended the opening along with city councillor responsible for the Area of Economic Recovery, María del Mar Martín Rojo. De la Torre accompanied CEO James Boyd, who had flown in specially from the company’s head office in Manchester along with chairman Brady Collins, to cut the ribbon outside the 600-square-metre office in the Eurocomsur building.
“The Malaga office is fundamental in our expansion,” said Boyd. “We can’t wait to keep on growing and developing more,” he added.
The mayor, addressing those present at the reception in English, said: “Malaga city council supports initiatives like this that help to grow competitiveness and employment. We wish Stanton Fisher the best of luck.”
Over the last month 19 people have been employed in Malaga although the new office has capacity for up to 100 members of staff and the option to expand even further within the same building.
The company hopes the operation in Malaga will help expand the range of services they offer. “The opportunities are endless and with our new office in Malaga, we plan to recruit regularly to support our growth as we cement ourselves in the wider European flight delay compensation market,” said the company’s project manager, Tom Duffield.source surinenglish
