Russell Scanlan Strengthens SME Services with Promotion
Nottingham’s largest independent insurance broker Russell Scanlan has further strengthened its growing SME (small and medium enterprises) team with a recent promotion.
Transferring from the company’s specialist Private Client department, Callum Whiting now takes on the role as SME Account Handler at Russell Scanlan, bringing ten years of experience in the insurance industry to the role.
Callum first joined Russell Scanlan’s Private Client team five years ago, and throughout this time administered personal policies for mid to high net worth clients including home, car and travel policies. His new role fulfils his ambitions to work with corporate clients across the East Midlands, helping to create bespoke commercial insurance packages tailored to each individual business.
He said: “Russell Scanlan’s SME department is moving from strength to strength, so this is an exciting time to be joining such an innovative team that is fast becoming a prominent part of the business. I thoroughly enjoyed my time working in the Private Client department with great colleagues and I count my main achievement as being the strong relationships I built with a number of clients – a skill I look forward to carrying forward into my new role.
“The move to SME Account Handler is a great step towards my goal of building a career in the corporate sector. I’m looking forward to getting a real insight into our SME clients; how they work and importantly, how we can help them.
“The directors have been nothing but supportive and continually encourage all staff to develop their knowledge and skill set by taking on new opportunities and qualifications.”
Callum joins a team of three who deal with Russell Scanlan’s SME clients and has already taken on new business sectors including Property, Office and Retail package policies.
Bryan Banbury, Managing Director at Russell Scanlan, said: “Nurturing talent from within our team is vital to the way we work at Russell Scanlan and Callum’s promotion is a testament to his hard work for us over the past five years.
“His new role as SME Account Handler was a natural pathway for the progression of his career into corporate insurance and we are delighted to be able to provide him with this opportunity. Callum brings a great depth of knowledge to his new role and we believe our SME team is now stronger than ever, further enhancing the services on offer to our clients.”
