Q Underwriting Services Ltd (‘Q Underwriting’) continues to strengthen its leadership team, as well as creating a new telephone-based Broker Development team. The announcement follows the recent launch of our new MGU (Managing General Underwriter) and Stuart Webb taking on the position of Managing Director (MGA).
Christian Burton has been appointed Head of Sales and Distribution. All Regional Development Managers (RDMs) across Q Underwriting’s sub-brands – TFP Schemes, Thistle Underwriting Services and aQmen Underwriting Services – will report to Christian with immediate effect.
He is a familiar face to colleagues and brokers after spending two years with Thistle Underwriting as Senior Regional Development Manager. He has also held sales roles at UK General, Towergate and Allianz.
Christian’s new role will see him take responsibility for sales and distribution with a focus on key broker partners. Christian commented: “I’m very excited to take the reins of Q Underwriting’s sales function. We have extensive distribution through our network of partner brokers, and I look forward to supporting them and helping to deliver the next phase of growth in this exciting underwriting business.”
In addition, Mike Hudson has taken on further responsibility. As Head of Development, currently responsible for marketing and agencies, Mike has established a new sales & marketing office in Chelmsford and launched a telephone-based Broker Development team. Mike has been with Q Underwriting since its formation, and originally joined from aQmen Underwriting Services.
Mike commented: “I’m excited to introduce our new telephone-based Broker Development team, which will work in partnership with our Sales & Distribution colleagues to provide real value to our business, as well as our broker partners.”
Q Underwriting have already made their first hire in this new team and Mike continued: “I am delighted to welcome Jamie Foran; he has a fantastic track record of working with brokers which will help him understand and cater for our brokers’ needs as our Broker Development team leader.” Most recently Jamie has worked at Pen Underwriting.
Christian, Mike and James will be based in Q Underwriting’s new Chelmsford office, the sales and marketing centre. Mike and Christian report to Stuart Webb, Managing Director of Q Underwriting, who will also be based in Chelmsford; Jamie and his Broker Development team will report into Mike Hudson.
