New recruit Scott Woodward has joined our Sales and Marketing team as Account Manager working with and supporting our customers based in the North and Scotland.
Scott joins us from Apple Underwriting where he was Broker Development Manager. He brings with him a wealth of experience and has worked in the insurance industry for the past 10 years.
Previously he held roles within sales, claims management and development teams and is dedicated to providing his clients with a first-class customer experience.
This new role was created following a review of our sales and marketing structure leading to the development of two distinct functions of Account Management and Business Development.
This new approach gives the benefit of additional support to our existing customers whilst also allowing for continuing expansion through the development of new business opportunities. Former Business Development Managers Julian Welch and Peter Simmons have stepped into new roles as part of this re-organisation.
Julian Welch is now Head of Account Management and will be supported in his role by our Account Management team of Sue Bridgen, Nigel Wardle and new team member Scott Woodward, as well as the Sales Support Team based in Norwich. Together, they will lead the development of work with our existing customers across the UK ensuring they have both face to face and office based contacts for schemes and claims handling with Coplus and support for Brokerplus accounts.
Peter Simmons is now Head of New Business and is responsible for building new contacts and relationships, and exploring and introducing new business opportunities for Coplus. Peter is developing new business across the suite of Coplus products and services with new broker and insurer partners
