CertAsig team says: “Thank you for making our 15th anniversary party such a great success!” – James Grindley, Group CEO
The entire CertAsig team would like to thank everyone for joining the company’s 15th Anniversary party and for your loyal support over the years.
The event took place last Wednesday at “Restaurant Diplomat”, one of the most elegant and splendid locations in Bucharest, frequented by the city’s business community.
Guests were received by a warm welcoming committee, led by James Grindley (CEO of CertAsig) and Maria Rangelova (Deputy CEO of CertAsig). Our specialist photographer managed to capture every wide smile as we as almost every firm and confident handshake. We say almost because as we had in excess of 200 guests!
The celebration started with three empowering and, on some lines, nostalgic speeches given by HM Paul Brummell (Ambassador to Romania), Nigel Williams (Chairman, Founder & Managing Partner to Royalton Partners) and James Grindley (CEO CertAsig). Speeches referred to CertAsig’s achievements in the last 15 years followed by more recent successes in the market, in particular CertAsig regional expansion into Bulgaria and Czech Republic. James Grindley highlighted CertAsig’s impressive claims-paying record over the years and thanked brokers for their past and future support.
„It is very important for CertAsig’s strategy and business development to step back from time to time and have an overview. Over the past 15 years, we have learned from some mistakes and realized discipline behind what you are doing is of the utmost importance. But also, the team: dedicated underwriters that properly manage the process.” said Nigel Williams, Chairman of Royalton Partners), in his opening speech.
James Grindley, on a more personal note and speaking in Romanian said: “This evening I would like to thank each and every one of you for your support. It has been a very interesting journey, abundant in change and a very positive experience.”
Guests enjoyed a flavor of Mediterranean and Asian Cuisine and stimulating conversation, both in the ballroom and on the patio, where the cover band Atelier animated the party with summer-time music. The amazing 66-pound CertAsig-themed cake was the star of the evening with Deputy CEO Maria Rangelova together with Nigel Williams doing the honors of cutting the first slice.
All in all, we can surely call this 15th Anniversary Cocktail Party a great success and that is thanks to you: our colleagues, broker partners, but most important, our friends, for your incredible support, your advice and input, your assistance and your time – for coming and enjoying this evening with us – or your kind thoughts – if only with us in spirit or social media.
As an incredible first 15 years of CertAsig concludes, in which we set high standards of underwriting and claims management excellence, business strategy and trust, we look forward with huge energy and ambition to the next 15 years!
