Legal & General has hired Craig Brown as director of its intermediary division.
Brown is an internal appointment having been at L&G for five years, with his most recent role being key account director.
Brown has taken over from Steve Bryan – who has joined The Exeter as director of distribution and marketing.
Mark Holweger, managing director at Legal & General Insurance, said: “Over the past five years, Craig has more than shown a commitment to intermediaries and a breadth of knowledge in the protection and GI markets.
“He has fostered very strong relationships with our key intermediary partners and we are confident that his experience in the sector will drive continued success for Legal & General’s insurance business.”
Brown will be responsible for L&G’s intermediary distribution in the protection and general insurance markets.
He has also headed up claims commercial management (insurance) and supplier management (insurance) at L&G.
Brown said: “Advisers continue to play a vital role in ensuring people across the UK are adequately insured for the unexpected. Even with the rise of technology, they have an opportunity to really show the value of professional advice and the ways in which they can support consumers.
“Over the past five years I have had the pleasure of building some great relationships with intermediaries in the protection and GI space. I look forward to developing these existing and new relationships in this new role as Legal & General does its part to help close the insurance gap.”
