The Movo Partnership network has appointed Julie Branton (pictured above) as broker liaison. She has joined from RCHL Group, where she was business development manager.
Before RCHL, Branton spent five years as business development manager for Broker Network, following five years in the same role for Ecclesiastical. She has more than 30 years of experience, with a deep knowledge of the broker market and a highly developed network.
In her role as broker liaison, Branton will be responsible for collaborating with and assisting the network’s new and existing appointed representative (AR) members, as well as working with the network’s insurer partners.
“We’re delighted to welcome Julie on board at such an exciting time; her appointment comes at a critical phase in our development,” said Lea Cheesbrough, managing director of Movo. “2022 will be a watershed year in our growth and her appointment is instrumental in helping us to achieve those ambitions, so I am delighted that we have secured such a highly experienced and capable individual.”
The Movo Partnership was established in 2019 by a collection of brokers in a bid to take advantage of sharing compliance and operational functions, to improve buying power and to help its broker members devote more time to client servicing. It currently has 52 AR broker members, 30 staff and in excess of £40 million GWP. Movo expects to hit 75 broker members and £65 million GWP in 2022.
“As a network we take a very individual approach – we are all about providing brokers with the services and support that they need rather than presenting them with a set of predefined services and solutions that might not fit their needs,” Cheesbrough said. “It’s about getting maximum value from the network to meet individual broker goals and targets, and this makes the broker liaison role absolutely vital to the success of that relationship.”
