Leading GI provider Uinsure has bolstered its team with two key appointments, amid continuing growth for the firm.
Ian Ballinger joins as Head of Key Accounts. He will report to Director of Sales Jason Berry and will work alongside Mark Hutchings, who retains his role as Head of Sales & Distribution.
Ian joins Uinsure from Legal & General, where he’s spent the past 15 years of his career.
During that time, Ian was instrumental in driving Legal & General’s GI business through various high-profile relationships - including Mortgage Advice Bureau, Intrinsic & London & Country Mortgages.
Uinsure’s Director of Sales, Jason Berry, said of the appointment:
“Ian joining Uinsure is a real coup. He’s passionate about General Insurance and is recognised by many industry stalwarts as a high calibre professional who consistently helps create positive results.
“I am certain Ian will support our Key Accounts very effectively and help embed General Insurance into their daily sales processes. Uinsure have huge ambitions and, as more new distribution keeps coming our way, we’ll continue to build our expert team with high calibre appointments like Ian’s."
Ian says: “I have watched with interest the significant growth of Uinsure, especially over recent years, and I am very much looking forward to playing my part in driving the business forward. Uinsure have huge ambitions and I am delighted to be joining a business that shares my passion for this market.”
In another key move for the company, Angela Robertson joins as its new BDM for Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Angela has over 20 years’ experience in the Insurance industry, having previously worked for Tesco Bank, AXA and Legal & General. She previously worked with Simon Taylor – Chief Executive Office of Uinsure – at Bankhall.
She says: “Having worked with Simon before, I know first-hand just how motivated and passionate he is. I’m delighted to team up with Simon once again and am thrilled to be joining Uinsure. Very exciting times lie ahead for Uinsure and I can’t wait to be a part of it.”
Jason Berry adds: “Angela has extensive broker experience and is perfectly placed to advise and educate our Scotland and Northern Ireland brokers. Her consultative approach and infectious enthusiasm will undoubtedly assist Uinsure to support both existing and new relationships superbly.
“Angela joins Uinsure at a brilliant time. New Distribution is partnering at unprecedented frequency and new business sales are at record levels.”
