11th January 2016

On Wednesday 16th December, the newly combined Covéa Insurance and Sterling team opened the doors to a newly refurbished, 3,000 sq. ft. regional office at the heart of the underwriting market in Birmingham.

The Birmingham team consists of thirteen underwriters who offer a multi- disciplined underwriting approach to a number of classes of business including; Commercial Combined, Motor Trade Combined, Motor Fleet, Commercial and Residential Property Owners, High Net Worth Household and Family Fleet. The team is headed up by Branch Manager Wendy Travers, Haj Aujla, Regional Lead Underwriter, and Regional Development Managers Kirk Peattie and Derek Bradshaw.

The new office is equipped with extensive broker meeting facilities that will also support the popular broker training academy programme in Birmingham, which has been successfully established by Sterling Insurance and which, as an integrated business, the company remains fully committed to.

Keith Hector, Director of Regional Operations for Covéa Insurance commented:

“This new office is a clear demonstration of our commitment to developing our regional proposition in the Midlands and with the potential to further increase the size of our team in the coming years. It is a major long-term investment in the Midlands region, and highlights our continued desire to engage with our Broker Partners on a regional and local basis.”
