Pen Underwriting has appointed two new business development managers, Dan Walker and Andy Helliwel to increase its “investment in dedicated regional support for brokers”.
Walker has been appointed as business development manager for the North West, a newly created role to provide “focused support for brokers in the area due to its significant growth opportunities”. He joins Pen from RSA in Manchester, having previously worked for Allianz in a business development role.
Meanwhile, Helliwell will carry out operations in the Midlands. He joins from Broker Insights where he was a senior business development manager bringing 20 years’ industry experience and having held a variety of senior roles across sales and broking.
Both will report to Nick Hewland, area sales manager for Midlands and North.
Hewland said: “Dan and Andy are fantastic additions to our team in the North West and Midlands, bringing great local knowledge, strong market relationships and huge enthusiasm for enabling brokers to trade right across the breadth of Pen’s products.
“With both bringing a blend of industry experience, they are brilliantly positioned to develop our broker relationships in the regions and ensure Pen continues to meet its mission of being easy to do business with.”
