PROTECTIVITY INSURANCE /SPORTS COVER DIRECT
For Andy Brownsell, insurance was a stopgap-turned-permanent career. While working as a fitness instructor and personal trainer, he joined SportsCover Direct and worked his way through sales, marketing and business development before he was appointed to commercial director in 2014. He has led the business to exceed 20% growth in GWP year-over-year for the past four years, and recently formed an in-house marketing team to keep track of and boost customer experience.
A 12-year veteran in the industry, Brownsell is “still as passionate about developing the business and learning more, as [he] was at the beginning”. He welcomes the growth of e-commerce in the insurance space and the increasing use of technology, while recommending that young professionals keep the personal touch.
“Understand the customer, their journey and various touch points and develop an online experience that works,” he says.
