CII Introduces Specialist Teams

January 13, 2006

The U.K.’s Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) announced that it’s introducing two specialist teams within its business development function in order to achieve “a more focussed approach to the way it does business with its key markets.”

“The teams will concentrate on the financial services market and on the general insurance and international markets to ensure that the CII understands and meets the specific market needs of each sector,” said the bulletin.

The CII is placing an increasing emphasis on growing its presence in the life and pensions sector with the launch of a new Faculty of Life and Pensions.

In the General Insurance and International Markets sector the CII announced: “Paul Brierley has become Business Development Director – and will continue to lead the CII’s developments in the insurance and broking sectors. He will also oversee the launch of the CII’s new Faculty of Underwriting and Risk.”

Both teams report to CII Group Marketing and Sales Director Lee Gladwell who commented: “We have ambitious plans to build on the CII Group’s success and are determined to deliver even greater value to our customers. To do this we need to have the right structure in place and I am delighted to have two market experts in Paul and Steve to drive our strategy forward.”

The CII noted that its “business development teams cover all parts of the UK and there are dedicated offices in Dubai and in Singapore to ensure the specific needs of those regions are fulfilled.”
