NEW PURPLE RECRUIT


July 10th 2018

Following the retirement last month of David Chapman, our Development Manager for the Central & Eastern Region, I’m pleased to announce the appointment of a direct replacement in that role.

Kerry Eves

Kerry joins Purple having spent most of the last 35 years in various business development roles. Originally with CU/CGU for almost 20 years, more recently she was a Strategic Account Manager with COBRA Network, working primarily with the broking community in the central and south eastern regions. We’re delighted to welcome someone with Kerry’s deep experience and extensive market contacts to our team. Obviously she will be settling into her new role over the coming weeks during which time she will be introducing herself to our members and partners.

I’m sure you’ll give Kerry a warm Purple welcome !

UK Broker Awards 2018 - the shortlist is out!


July 4th 2018

 

We’re extremely proud to be shortlisted once again in the Insurance Age UK Broker Awards for ‘Network of the Year’… we were over the moon to come home with this prestigious award a year ago and we’re hoping we can make it a double. As last year, the competition is extremely tough but we’re confident we’ll be giving the rest of them a run for their money ! 

 

Also huge congratulations to our member Movo Insurance Brokers who have been shortlisted for not one but two awards….. ‘Customer Service’ and the prestigious ‘Commercial Lines Broker of the Year’. Being shortlisted is a huge achievement for Golan and the Team and we wish them the very best of luck.

 


Purple Conference 2018 - the best yet!


April 23rd 2018

 

On Tuesday 17th April, we held our biggest ever Conference and Expo to date, with nearly 250 people attending... We believe it may be the biggest network event ever!

As in previous years, the annual event was at the magnificent Celtic Manor Resort in Newport. Our MD, Les Brewin opened the conference and introduced sessions from various speakers including; The World of SME, from Dave Martin, Allianz Director. An update from Steve White, CEO of BIBA. And a first class regulatory update from Jim Dart, Dart Compliance.

The Expo, supported by 34 insurers and provider partners, had a real buzz with plenty of business networking going on. Many of our insurers commented that it was the best conference they have attended and had given them lots of new business opportunities.

The conference concluded with a view on the UK economy post-Brexit, from BBC and SKY News Economist Louise Cooper. This was followed by dinner, opened by Jelf CEO Phil Barton and then hilarious evening entertainment from ‘The Raymond & Mr Timpkins Review’. Nothing like a good laugh to end another hugely successful Purple event.
