Covéa Insurance strengthens Personal Lines distribution team with the appointment of two new Key Account Managers

17th March

Covéa Insurance announces the strengthening of its personal lines distribution team, with the appointments of David Cuthbert and Jackie Oram as Key Account Managers.

With 16 years’ industry experience, David Cuthbert joins from Zurich Insurance where he was Personal Lines Segment Manager and held responsibility for brokers within the central region. Having also worked within a brokerage, David brings with him hugely valuable experience having viewed the market and account development from both an insurer and distributor perspective.

Jackie Oram also joins from Zurich Insurance where, in her more recent role, she was responsible for all key broker partners in the South. During her time at Zurich, Jackie also developed significant expertise in underwriting which will be invaluable in helping the company to develop its market proposition.

Sue Coffey, Head of Personal Lines Distribution, Covéa Insurance commented:

“I am delighted to welcome David and Jackie whose experience and calibre will be a real asset to our personal lines distribution team. This investment demonstrates our commitment to further developing our Personal Lines proposition, whilst maintaining key relationships with our broker partners.”
