The teams will concentrate on the financial services market and on the general insurance and international markets to ensure that the CII understands and meets the specific market needs of each sector.    
In particular the CII is placing an increasing emphasis on growing its presence in the  life and pensions sector. Products and services aimed specifically  at the banking and building society markets are being developed and  a new Faculty of Life and Pensions is shortly to be formally  launched.    
Steve Jenkins has joined the CII in the new position of Business Development Director  – Financial Services Market to lead this team. He brings over 20  years experience to the role gained at AXA Sun Life, latterly as  Head of Strategic Partnerships, where he held a range of sales  leadership roles, involving business to business and partnership  projects in the adviser and the banking/building society sectors.    
Paul Brierley has become Business  Development Director – General Insurance and International Markets  and will continue to lead the CII’s developments in the insurance  and broking sectors. He will also oversee the launch of the CII’s  new Faculty of Underwriting and Risk.    
Both teams report  to CII Group Marketing and Sales Director Lee Gladwell who says, “We have ambitious  plans to build on the CII Group’s success and are determined to  deliver even greater value to our customers. To do this we need to  have the right structure in place and I am delighted to have two  market experts in Paul and Steve to drive our strategy forward.”    The CII’s business  development teams cover all parts of the UK and there are dedicated offices in  Dubai and in Singapore to ensure the  specific needs of those regions are fulfilled.
