NMU has announced it has created a team of trading underwriters to meet the increased demand for new cargo and freight liability enquiries.
The new underwriter team will consist of James Wilson, Angie Harrison, Tommy Glading and Chris Vernon, who all have been with NMU for a number of years and each will bring a “wealth of knowledge” to the team.
The creation of the team will reportedly give a “central focal point” for new business and will support brokers from across the UK.
Nick Green, sales and development manager for NMU, said: “We’re still very conscious of the difficult market conditions and the importance of being available for our brokers in a remote-working environment, we see this as an additional way of enhancing what is already recognised as a “best-in-class” service.
“It’s important to stress that, whilst the Trading Underwriter Team is primarily there to be the focal point of new business enquiries for cargo and freight liabilities, we also value the relationships that our brokers have with the current Underwriting Team, who will continue to deal with new business enquiries, as required.”
He added: “This is really about providing brokers with the continued high level of service they are used to from NMU, whilst giving them options for new enquiries.”
