Credit and political risk insurance broker BPL Global has recruited industry veteran Emma Ashworth from brokerage giant Willis.
The specialist broker has appointed Ashworth as company director who will help BPL Global set its future strategy, explore new business and cement its market position.
“I am excited to be joining BPL Global,” Ashworth said. “They are a highly respected company and I welcome this new challenge with such a distinguished team.”
