"This is an evolution in the structure of our broker business that will deliver more focus and consistency in the way we deal and trade with our broker partners."
Specialist insurer Hiscox has appointed James Stewart-Smith to broker sales director - a newly created role within the broker arm of its UK business.
Having progressed at pace since joining Hiscox in 2014, James will now take responsibility of Hiscox’s seven regional branches and regional broker relationships.
In addition, Trish White has been appointed to the newly created role of strategic accounts director and Dave Smith to head of schemes, as the business focuses on delivering greater value and support for brokers.
Trish is currently recruiting to bolster her team of strategic account managers to deepen relationships with key broker partners.
Jodi Cartwright, distribution director at Hiscox UK, said: “This is an evolution in the structure of our broker business that will deliver more focus and consistency in the way we deal and trade with our broker partners.
“We love to see people develop within Hiscox and James, Trish and Dave are perfectly placed to bolster our commitment to the broker channel as part of my leadership team. This is a move that will reinforce our key broker relationships and ensure we capitalise on the market opportunities ahead of us.”
