Covéa Insurance – In it to win it!

26th September

James Reader collects the trophy at Insurance Times awards 2015Covéa Insurance continues on a high with news that the company has been shortlisted for a further two top industry awards.

Having won Personal Lines Insurer of the Year at the 2015 Insurance Times Awards, the company is delighted to not only have again been shortlisted for Personal Lines Insurer of the Year, but to also have been shortlisted for General Insurer of the Year at this year’s awards.  The insurer has won an impressive number of awards in recent months, a highlight being the coveted Personal Lines Insurer of the Year title at the 2016 British Insurance Awards at the Royal Albert Hall in July.

Carol Geldard, Personal Lines Director commented,

“As both these awards are by nomination only, simply being shortlisted is fantastic recognition of the great work of the whole Covéa Insurance team.  We’re fortunate to have an incredibly passionate, committed team whose combined efforts have ensured we are front of mind for our customers for all the right reasons. We’ve got everything crossed for the awards evening in December, but whatever the outcome, we’re thrilled to be on the shortlist.”

The Company is going through a significant period of growth, which has driven substantial recruitment and created many internal promotional opportunities. With a multi-million pound investment in a contemporary new office space at Dean Clough, Halifax, the launch of a direct to consumer offering under the brand Provident Insurance, and being named as one of the Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies to Work For in the UK for the second year running, it certainly appears the insurer is going from strength to strength!
