One commercial insurance underwriting specialist has recently announced its newest East Anglia regional development underwriter.
Arista Insurance, a business liability insurance underwriting specialist, announced the appointment of Stephen Robinson to the position of development underwriter for East Anglia. With more than two and a half decades of experience in the professional indemnity underwriting field, Mr Robinson’s new appointment dovetails with Arista’s underwriter placement strategy to provide brokers with underwriters in close proximity.
Arista has up until now been serving the East Anglia insurance market from it’s office in St Albans, but now with Mr Robinson’s presence in the region on a permanent basis, broker support levels will be enhanced and new business opportunities will be had, the insurer stated. Mr Robinson, a property and liability specialist, will be writing all classes of business out of his Ipswich offices.
Prior to his work for Arista, Mr Robinson was underwriting manager for First Assist. Before that he was area underwriting manager for Axa’s Ipswich branch.
One Arista spokesperson remarked that the firm was quite pleased to announce the arrival of an underwriter of Mr Robinson’s extensive experience. Mr Robinson’s understanding and local knowledge concerning the East Anglia market makes him the ideal choice to take on the responsibility for developing Arista’s business in the region, added the spokesperson.
Mr Robinson is ideally placed to not only provide excellent levels of support to brokers through Arista’s modern systems but to also cultivate key relationships with these brokers as well. Arista attributed this to his reputation for excellence amongst the region, stating that Mr Robinson’s appointment will ultimately give the insurer greater penetration and focus amongst a selection of regional independent brokers.
