Rob Morrison has joined the real estate team as an account executive after spending 12 years in the property team at Reich.
In addition, Laura Whitby and Joanne Pitcher have been appointed into the FlatGUARD division. Whitby has over eight years experience at RSA and takes on the role of client service executive.
Meanwhile, Pitcher has joined as a claims executive following 14 years of experience at Mansons.
Michael Regan, director of Real Estate, said: “The construction industry has had a kickstart this year after a period of uncertainty, and we are hugely busy thanks to the Owner-Controlled Insurance Programmes, which cover a range of risks and puts the developer back in control.
“Rob’s experience means we can continue to drive this industry shift with existing and new clients.”
Martin Kent-Heath, FlatGUARD operations manager, added: “The residential flat insurance business has been the focus of much interest, and rightly so.
“Our team has been working hard to support any changes in the industry and the result of that work is that we now need to expand the team to manage the growth – which is across the UK. We’re delighted to welcome Laura and Jo to the team.”
