Insurance providers Charles Taylor take space at Lakeside North Harbour
The firm has leased 12,169 sq ft of space at the campus as the team relocates from Chichester, where they’ve spent the past 50 years.
They chose Lakeside for its accessibility, transport links and wide pool of local talent, with the business looking to build a diverse and skilled workforce following the move.
Simon Bateman, asset manager at Lakeside, said: “We’re dedicated to helping our occupiers shape the future of work.
“We provide an environment that supports employee health and wellbeing while helping businesses bring in new talent and retain employees.
“Our values align with Charles Taylor’s in improving lives while benefiting the health and wellbeing of everyone on campus.
“We look forward to welcoming Charles Taylor to our dynamic blue and green business community.”
Charles Taylor Assistance specialises in emergency medical and security assistance, travel risk management and insurance claims solutions, operating 24 hours a day – just like Lakeside.
CEO Jody Baker added: “It’s been a momentous journey for the company over the last 50 years.
“We started in 1973 as CEGA, a family enterprise based at Goodwood, and went on to create a large local business in Funtington, Chichester.
“Now part of the Charles Taylor Group and serving the wider multisector insurance market, we’re at the next chapter of our growth, supported by Charles Taylor’s presence in over 100 global locations.
“I’m honoured to take the business forward and our new base at Lakeside is the next step in fulfilling our commercial growth plan.”
