Compass appoints former Broker Network director

The UK networks division of Arthur J. Gallagher (AJG), Compass Broker Services, has appointed Scott Bennett as UK sales director.

A former sales director for Broker Network, Bennett will take nationwide responsibility for sustaining the rate of membership growth and offering solutions, services and support tailored to each member’s particular stage of growth.

His remit will cover both Select — the network designed for brokers generating more than £3 million gross written premium — and Westinsure, the national broker alliance aimed at smaller, established independent brokers located around the UK.

Bennett joins from fire suppression, commercial alarm and property security specialist Assured Fire & Security where he has been sales director since July 2013.

John Lincoln, managing director of Compass Broker Services, said: “Scott has a great track record in successfully growing member partnerships, and brings the ideal mix of skills and expertise to lead our sales strategy from the front.

“He will provide a strong complement to our hugely experienced team of regional business development managers as we look to maintain our impressive growth trajectory, by focusing firmly on delivering the most appropriate services, exclusive products and unrivalled market access to our members.”

Bennett added: “It’s fantastic to be back working with the UK’s diverse, ambitious and fiercely independent insurance broker community, and for a network proposition that passionately believes in adding value. Our over-riding objective is to help our members compete more efficiently, whatever their stage of maturity and specific strategy for growth.”
