Capsule Insurance Services chief operating officer Liam Green has received the Oliver Rose BIBA Young Broker Award from the British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA).

Handed out during the second and final day of The BIBA Conference 2023 in Manchester, the award was renamed in memory of Oliver Rose – the BIBA Young Broker of the Year in 2016 who passed away in March 2023. It was presented to Green by Oliver’s mother, Helen Rose.

BIBA chief executive Steve White had this to say: “The candidates were fantastic, and all deserve recognition for their efforts and achievements which put our industry in a strong position for the future.

“Liam has an excellent attitude and great work ethic, which is evident in his own words: ‘any ability I lack I make up for in effort’. However, we saw that Liam definitely has the ability, and it will be exciting to see him and his company grow over coming years. Liam will no doubt be one of our next generation leaders.”

Meanwhile, runners-up Niki Facey (Marsh Commercial) and Heather Cave (Marsh Ltd) were also commended.

“Niki clearly has drive, determination, and genuine care for the profession and the future of it and is a D&I (diversity and inclusion) champion,” said White. “There is no doubt Niki will be pivotal in the betterment of our industry over the coming years.  

“Heather has used her own experiences and challenges to really develop and grow to allow her to be the best she can be for herself and her team. Although Heather is already in a management role, it is clear that she will be a highly effective leader and role model of the future within our industry.”

‘Young’ brokers are those aged 35 and below.
