BLP Insurance appoints new Head of Sales
- Date: 08/02/2016
BLP Insurance, the specialist residential and commercial insurer, has appointed Phil Harris as Head of Sales to support the growth of the residential sales team nationwide.
In his new role, Phil will assume responsibility for the company’s business development programme in the residential sector as well as contributing to the company’s broader strategic planning. He will also be pivotal in ensuring an optimum customer services experience is maintained throughout the sales process.
Phil has over 20 years’ sales experience and joins from Glenigan Ltd, a market leading construction intelligence organisation. He held a number of positions during his 22 years tenure at the company, including Head of Key Accounts, Sales Manager and, most recently, Strategic Account Director.
Kim Vernau, CEO, BLP Insurance, said: “Phil has a long history of consistently delivering growth and is a great addition to lead our growing sales team. As we continue to see increasing demand for our housing warranty and commercial latent defects insurance, it’s great to have Phil on board, not only to capitalise on this momentum but also to ensure that we continue to deliver the exceptional customer experience that has been fundamental to our success.”
Phil Harris, Head of Sales, BLP Insurance, said: “The recent growth of the sales team is a reflection of the increasing demand for specialist insurance products for building developments nationally, and is yet another reminder that the construction industry is taking off again. It’s an exciting time to join BLP Insurance, with the Government’s initiatives to reduce the red tape hampering the planning process and the promise to invest heavily to reduce the current housing shortage.”
The appointment of Phil Harris follows on from the addition of three senior appointments to BLP Insurance’s sales team in September 2015, in response to increasing regional demand for its building insurance products.
