Russell Scanlan Welcomes New Appointment
Leading independent insurance broker Russell Scanlan, has strengthened its Nottingham team with the appointment of a new Private Client Account Handler.
The firm, which is based in Wellington Circus, has appointed Darren Swinson as part of its continuing growth plans. Darren has almost 30 years’ experience working in the private client insurance sector, having previously worked at JRT Insurance in Nottingham.
The Private Client team specialises in arranging and administering policies for those looking to insure high value items and collections. In his day-to-day role, Darren will be responsible for renewing accounts, answering new enquiries and building and maintaining relationships with both new and existing clients.
Darren said “My first interview out of college was at Russell Scanlan, unfortunately I didn’t get the position then so I am delighted to have come full circle and return here so many years later. Russell Scanlan has always had an excellent reputation and I’m excited to be joining the team.
“As a CII certified professional, joining a chartered firm is an exciting opportunity. Everyone has been incredibly welcoming and I am already settling in well. I am looking forward to getting stuck in to the role, building relationships with my clients and the rest of the team.”
Mike Dickinson, Sales and Marketing Director at Russell Scanlan, added: “We’re always on the lookout for dedicated and hard-working staff, so we’re delighted to welcome Darren to the team. His experience will be invaluable in our Private Client team. He is an excellent addition to the company and we look forward to seeing his achievements over the coming months and years.”
Russell Scanlan is Nottingham’s longest established independent insurance. The firm was awarded chartered status by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) in 2016 and is one of only a handful of brokers in the East Midlands to hold the prestigious title.
