New faces have joined top 75 independent UK commercial insurance brokerage A One Insurance Group (AOIG). Hampshire-based A-One Insurance Group (AOIG) has appointed several new members of staff.
All of the new appointments are based at the Ringwood head office (one of six regional offices) where a team of more than 120 insurance specialists work for people seeking cover for everyday personal requirements, commercial risk management or bespoke schemes.
Carolyn Marshall has joined as a commercial account handler, working on the Laundry and Pristine Scheme. Established more than a decade ago, this has been designed for commercial laundries, launderettes and dry cleaners whose needs go beyond the scope of an ordinary policy. Part of the larger SME team, they report to commercial team manager Vikki Pynen.
Claire Brand has been recruited as a property account handler. She manages a book of business covering renewals, mid-terms changes and new business for property managing agents.
Peter Matcham, who has joined the new aviation division as an account executive, reports to James McComish and looks after new business for clients who operate aircraft (and boats). Well qualified for the role, he could fly a plane before he could drive a car.
Completing the line-up is claims advisor Pamela Hughes.
Ryan Jupp, director AOIG, said: “We extend a warm welcome to all the new members of staff who bring not only experience to their various roles, but also excellent local connections, which is something important to us as a firm because we are active in a wide range of community engagement initiatives.”
A-One Insurance Group (AOIG) is one of the top 75 independent UK commercial insurance brokerages and is an award winning business, founded in Bournemouth in 1993 by Ian Penfold, managing director, who wanted to present the local business community with an independent alternative to established high street brokers.
