Hogg Robinson Group (HRG) expands office network in the UK

HRG has confirmed that it is to open a major new travel office in Great Yarmouth, in the UK.  Opening in September, HRG has made a significant investment in new premises in Norfolk from where it will provide its full range of corporate travel services including its HRG Logistics division which is dedicated to serving companies operating in the marine, offshore and energy and workforce travel sectors.

The new HRG office will provide clients with access to HRG’s global expertise, local capability and proprietary technology, easing the logistical challenges created by working in some of the most challenging locations in the world.  

David Radcliffe, Chief Executive of HRG commented: “I am delighted that HRG is opening a new office in the UK. We continue to thrive in a competitive industry and that is testament to our staff who maintain our renowned high standards of service. HRG will be strategically well placed to serve the growing number of energy firms using the Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft and Norwich area as their base for world-wide operations”.

Ian Windsor, HRG’s Managing Director Europe North, said the oil and gas sector had become an important development area for HRG and “like Aberdeen, this area has been identified as a key energy centre”.

Mr. Windsor went on the say he is very positive about the prospects for HRG in East Anglia: “I’m delighted to be developing our business here and already my team and I are getting to know the area and meeting some great people who I hope will join HRG and work with us in developing our new centre as an important part of the HRG network.

Ian continued: “We have a long established history of ensuring that whenever we invest in a new location we become one of the best employers in the region, offering good career prospects, and that we show our commitment to the area by immersing ourselves in the local community. Within HRG people are very important.  We have great technology, but even the best technology needs great people to help give a service which exceeds our customers’ highest expectations.”

Cllr Trevor Wainwright, the leader of Great Yarmouth Borough Council, said: "It is really good news for the Great Yarmouth borough and the region that international companies such as HRG are choosing to invest here and create new jobs at Beacon Park.”
