Hullfc.com catches up with the team from HI Commercial Insurance Services in our latest Sponsor In Focus piece.
Can you tell us a little bit more about HI Commercial Insurance Services and what you do?
As a commercial insurance broker, HI Commercial is a new brand formed by the Directors of Hedon Insurance, in 2019.
With offices in Hull and Cottingham, we are an independent local business, run by local people providing commercial insurance cover for manufacturers, factories, construction companies, warehouses, hospitality and more.
When disaster strikes, it is important for businesses to know they are fully insured, losses will be covered and disruption to daily operations will be minimised and so the message to clients is: ’At your service, at your side commercial insurance with a personal touch.’
We always visit our clients’ place of business, getting to know them personally and how their business works. Plus, we keep in touch throughout the year as we know that from day 1 to 365, lots of changes can take place which directly affect insurance policies.
How did the opportunity to become involved with Hull FC come about?
Directors Luke Byron and Anne Walters from HI Commercial are huge fans of Hull FC, supporting them at every home game and as many away games as possible.
We have always wanted to be able to support the team through the business and now with the launch of our new brand and, as part of our marketing strategy we have been able to provide sponsorship.
Can you tell us about what you’re doing with the club in the 2020 season?
We are pleased to be sponsoring club captain, Danny Houghton for the season. We also now sponsor the Player of the Month award which means we get to present the player chosen by the fans with their award.
Are any of your staff big Hull FC supporters and did that help the decision to become involved with the club?
Yes absolutely. Luke has been brought up on the sport since he was a young boy, its in his blood. When he joined the business, Anne and her family had been Hull City supporters but Luke invited them along to watch the rugby and they actually liked it more! The rest is history.
How excited are you to have taken up the opportunity with one of the regions top sports clubs?
We are very excited. It’s great to show our support from the terrace as a regular fan but now we feel much more involved with the club. Being a sponsor brings many marketing opportunities, we hope to get to know the other sponsors and also raise the profile of HI Commercial.
Overall its a great platform for promotion but, we also love the sport!
