New business executive
COMMERCIAL INSURANCE SERVICES LTD.
Realising his passion at a young age, Adam Cooper knew exactly what career he wanted to pursue.
“[What] initially motivated me to enter into insurance at the age of 16 was an interest and passion for risk and how insurance [offered] a safety blanket for clients if the worst was to happen. My passion has grown ever since,” he says.
Joining the business at the age of 17 with Commercial Insurance Services’ business administration apprenticeship scheme, Cooper quickly made an impression at the Surrey-based independent insurance broker. After impressing his tutor, Cooper completed his NVQ in business and administration months ahead of schedule and soon after, at the age of 19, he was appointed as the firm’s new business executive.
“This was a big challenge for me, but I found [that] my new role came naturally; building relationships with new and existing clients and learning how to ensure that cover is suitable for their needs, while ensuring that we could offer them competitive quotations,” he says.
Intent on building his skills and career further, Cooper entered 2016 with his CERT CII qualification, was a BIBA Young Broker of the Year finalist and regularly engages with as many charity and community events as possible.
“All I can think about is growing my knowledge of the industry to help my career and putting myself forward for more industry level qualifications,” he says.
