Assurant Intermediary has announced the appointment of Liam Nugent as business development manager (BDM).
He will cover Wales and the Midlands, supporting Assurant’s existing introducers as well as building relationships to increase new business.
Nugent (pictured) reports to Carl Stacey, head of distribution and is responsible for Assurant’s relationships with its intermediary partners.
He started his new role in September and has completed an induction and introduction programme including presenting at network events.
Stacey said: “I am delighted to welcome Liam to the team. This appointment ensures we can continue to meet our advisers’ needs, in providing face to face support. Liam joins us from another Assurant business, where he managed a high performing insurance sales team.
“Assurant Intermediary is committed to providing the best support to our introducers and having Liam join us, gives us a stronger presence in the field to back up the sterling work undertaken by our office based support team.”
Nugent added: “I’ve been working at Assurant for just over five years and have been involved with selling insurance which has given me a first hand view of the benefits of cover and the consequences of neglecting to insure against loss or breakage.
“It is something I am passionate about so I am excited to join the intermediary business and look forward to meeting advisers to discuss the value of our GI products and services.”
