PRESS RELEASE: Major financial services provider, the BGL Group, has announced the opening of a new office hub in London. The business which owns brands such as comparethemarket.com, Junction and Beagle Street, as well as Fusion contact centres, opened its Shoreditch digital, data, technology and media hub at the beginning of November.
There will still be significant digital, data and media expertise in Peterborough.
BGL’s Chief Executive, Matthew Donaldson said: “The new London hub will complement our Peterborough head office perfectly, placing us close to the digital and data expertise in London and linking us closely with our businesses in Europe. This additional office will further enhance our digital and data capabilities and benefit the whole Group.
“We continue to attract some of the brightest talent around and there’s no doubt that having a base in London adds to the benefits of working with us.
“As the Group continues to grow, it is essential that we have the opportunity to be physically close to expertise in London, which is widely recognised as one of the world’s leading digital and data hubs. In addition, with many of our consumer brands working so closely with London-based media and marketing agencies, this was simply a very practical decision to make.”
BGL’s headquarters will remain in Peterborough, where it employs more than 1,600 people. It also operates offices in York, Wakefield, Sunderland, Paris and Haarlem (Netherlands).
