June 13, 2006

Sue is a human resources (HR) development professional with over ten years experience of training, learning and development and five years working as an internal training consultant. She joins Assurant Solutions from the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association. She held the role of corporate staff development manager for nearly six years and during this time introduced programmes to support organisational development – particularly in senior executive and line manager development, induction and performance management.

In her role at Assurant Solutions, Sue will be responsible for the design and delivery of its learning and development programmes, ensuring that resources and facilities are accessible to everyone throughout the business in order to encourage continuous personal and professional development.

Commenting on the appointment, Daniel le Fleming, managing director of Assurant Solutions UK & Ireland, said: “Assurant Solutions is committed to giving its people the opportunity to develop, providing the training and support to help each individual achieve their own personal career goals. As we have grown our business over the past two years, it has become increasingly clear that we needed a dedicated resource within our HR team to focus on our corporate vision. Sue brings an enormous amount of experience, enthusiasm and energy to our business and I’m sure she will make a real difference to all our people at all levels within the group.”

Sue added: “An effective learning and development programme gives an organisation and its people confidence that they are fulfilling their roles to the best of their ability – and this confidence is reflected in the way our clients, competitors and industry associations come to view us. Assurant Solutions has already made a significant investment in its training activity, and I am looking forward to the challenge of building upon the foundations already laid and creating a learning and development culture that will be a benchmark for others to follow.”
