Bought By Many, the UK’s most trusted pet insurance provider, last night won the Contribution to Gender Diversity and Change Excellence awards at the first Women in Insurance awards in London.
The Contribution to Gender Diversity award is given to organisations within insurance who have implemented a project, initiative or wider changes in gender diversity to promote the cause within the insurance industry. Judges described Bought By Many as having “great core values” and said it is “doing in practice what many talk about in regards to gender diversity”.
The Change Excellence Award was given to Bought By Many’s Melanie Walker, Business Analyst, in recognition of her work on Bought By Many’s expansion into the Swedish market. Melanie’s entry was described by judges as “providing clear examples of her change abilities across a range of projects, which presented difficult challenges.”
Commenting on the wins, Steven Mendel, CEO and Co-founder of Bought By Many, said:
“I’m beyond proud that we’ve won these awards. We recruit on the grounds of capability and fit with our values, and I firmly believe the talent we have is driving real change. Our commitment to making insurance better for everyone applies to the industry itself as well as the customer, and I’m delighted that our hard work is being recognised by our peers.”
Commenting on the awards and what they mean for the wider industry, Charlotte Halkett, Chief Commercial Officer of Bought By Many said:
“We’re thrilled to pick up these awards on an inspirational night for the industry as a whole. Being recognised alongside these other ambassadors of insurance is a real honour. We still have improvements to make as an industry, but to hear and celebrate the stories and work going on from Bought By Many and the other winners was an uplifting experience and one that made me proud of the people working so hard to make insurance better for everyone.”
Bought By Many designs better insurance products using search data and consumer feedback, and won the Gold Trusted Service Award in 2018 and 2019 award from Feefo, with more than 9,200 five-star reviews on the platform in the past year. The company was named the UK’s most trusted pet insurance provider by MoneyWise in June 2019.
