THOMAS Miller (Isle of Man) Limited celebrated the successful relocation of its office to Samuel Harris House, St Georges Street, Douglas, with a champagne and canapé reception on Thursday night.
The move sees the entire Thomas Miller operation in the island back under one roof after three years of occupying two sites in Douglas.
In addition to the opening, the company was pleased to reveal a number of paintings commissioned for the boardroom and reception of the office from local artist Anna Clucas.
Anna exhibited a number of other paintings during the evening.
Lieutenant Governor Adam Wood made a special appearance alongside more than 100 guests from the government, the business community, staff and friends.
Chairman of the Thomas Miller Group, Hugo Wynn-Williams, welcomed guests and thanked them for their continued support over the years.
He spoke about the various businesses within the company including the Hellenic Mutual War Risks Association (Bermuda) Limited which now manages over $90bn of Greek Shipping.
In particular, Hugo highlighted the warm and helpful welcome that was received 22 years ago from the government, regulators and the business community when the company first moved to the Isle of Man.
Since its incorporation in 1988, TM (IOM) and its sister companies have become some of the leading providers of insurance and investment management in the island.
