Assurant Intermediary sales team now 17-strong

Assurant Intermediary has made two appointments to its general insurance sales team.

Their arrival brings the overall size of the sales team to 17.

Roisin Lindsay and Mark Bell-Langford have both been appointed as senior business development managers. They will have responsibility for the field-based business development managers (BDMs).

Lindsay joins from Santander, where she was a BDM. Previously she was a BDM for Assurant Intermediary in Ireland where she was responsible for identifying new business opportunities amongst mortgage brokers and intermediaries, promoting Assurant Intermediary’s range of general insurance products and bringing new clients on board.

She has also held senior sales roles at HBOS Intermediaries and Abbey Plc.

Bell-Langford has over 18 years’ experience in the financial services industry, having worked across South Wales and the South West of England.

He was most recently a BDM for Assurant Intermediary and has previously worked at Northern Rock, Alliance & Leicester plc, Countrywide and Abbey Life.

Kevin Paterson, sales and marketing director of Assurant Intermediary, said: “We have built a reputation for providing our broker partners in the UK with excellent service and some of the best products available on the market. We understand the needs of brokers – and our service proposition has been built around them. These two senior appointments reflect the growth we’ve experienced in the demand for general insurance and our desire to maintain those same excellent service levels.
