Bluefin Underwriting has set its sights on expansion in a new region after the appointment of a broker development manager.
Ian Chapman will take the reins for the Yorkshire and North East of England region having made the switch from One Commercial. Chapman is a local CII president and boasts significant underwriting and sales experience in the MGA sector that Paul Drake, head of Bluefin Underwriting, believes will help fill a noticeable gap in the firm’s national coverage.
“Ian’s appointment is a fantastic opportunity for us to achieve our ambitious targets for 2017 and beyond,” Drake explained.
