BLP appoints new Business Development Executive
- Date: 13/06/2016
BLP Insurance, the specialist residential and commercial insurer, has appointed Samantha Ferneley as Business Development Executive.
In her new role, Samantha will help drive sales in London and South-East regions. Samantha will also be instrumental in pushing BLP Insurance’s additional products, such as the Life Cycle Costing tool, as well as industry-leading initiatives, including the Buildoffsite Property Assurance Scheme (BOPAS).
Samantha joins BLP Insurance with 15 years’ experience in the construction insurance industry, having most recently spent five years with Premier Guarantee as Business Development Manager. She was previously Account Manager at Zurich Building Guarantee and also worked for Holbrook Insurance Brokers.
Kim Vernau, CEO, BLP Insurance, says: “Samantha has a long and successful track record in implementing sales strategy across the construction insurance industry. Continued shortages of labour and long-lead times on building materials together with the ongoing onslaught of new regulations and initiatives make for a challenging period in the construction sector. With these difficulties also comes opportunity and we’re excited to have Samantha on board as we look to build on our business growth and reach.”
Samantha Ferneley, Business Development Executive, BLP Insurance, says: “The growth of the business development team is a reflection of the increasing demand for specialist insurance products for building developments nationally, and I look forward to utilising my industry experience to capitalise on this momentum.”
