Direct Insurance Group has announced that Matt Field has been appointed to the board as group sales and marketing director.
Field has been with the insurance group since 2016 when he joined as business development manager for the North of the UK wholesale broking business DILM (Direct Insurance London Market).
In 2017 he was promoted to head of marketing and development and has spent the last four years “at the helm” of the sales and business development teams as well as head of group marketing and UK sales.
Commenting on his new position, Field said: “I’ve been with the Group now for just five years, but in that short time I’ve been a part of their hugely exciting journey and can’t wait for the next chapter. Its infectious entrepreneurial spirit drives us all forward – you can’t help but be impressed by the people and the Group’s collective ambition.”
David Bearman, CEO for Direct Insurance Group, added: “As a group we’ve now surpassed the $500bn (£363bn) milestone so we’re well on our way. But for me this business is all about our culture and our people – seeing them grow.
“That’s why we’re wholly focussed on becoming the best global (re)insurance specialty wholesale business in the world; whilst that might mean we also become the biggest, the primary motivation is always to be the best.”
