Assurant Intermediary appoints BDM

David Wilson has joined Assurant Intermediary as a business development manager (BDM).

Wilson joins the specialist general insurance provider from NatWest Intermediary Solutions where he spent almost five years as a field business development manager, building and maintaining business relationships with intermediaries in the Essex and Cambridgeshire regions.

He has over 10 years of experience in the financial services sector, including sales roles at Norwich Union and Royal Bank of Scotland.

Wilson will be responsible for supporting existing broker relationships, identifying new business opportunities amongst mortgage brokers and intermediaries, promoting Assurant Intermediary’s range of general insurance products and bringing new clients on board in the central south east covering areas including east London, the Fens, Norfolk and Suffolk.

Kevin Paterson, Assurant Intermediary’s sales and marketing director, said: “Many businesses view the sales function purely as bringing business in through the door. We don’t subscribe to that opinion. Having the right products to attract new business is meaningless if your business fails to deliver superior service.
