General insurance (GI) protection specialist Assurant Intermediary has promoted Liam Nugent from sales leader to business development manager (BDM) for Wales and the Midlands.
Nugent (pictured) officially started his new role on the 16 September and has completed an extensive induction programme including presenting at network events.
He will be reporting to Carl Stacey, head of distribution.
Stacey said: “I am delighted to welcome Liam to the team. This appointment ensures we can continue to meet our advisers’ needs, in providing face to face support.
“Liam joins us from another Assurant business, where he managed a high performing insurance sales team.
“Assurant Intermediary is committed to providing the best support to our introducers and having Liam join us, gives us a stronger presence in the field to back up the sterling work undertaken by our office-based support team.”
Nugent added: “I’ve been working at Assurant for just over five years and have been involved with selling insurance which has given me a first-hand view of the benefits of cover and the consequences of neglecting to insure against loss or breakage.
“It is something I am passionate about, so I am excited to join the intermediary business and look forward to meeting advisers to discuss the value of our GI products and services.”
