Cowens grows senior team as business expands

Following a period of rapid business growth, Midlands insurance broker, Cowens, part of Cowens Group, has appointed yet another Senior Account Handler.

Michael Cooper is the third new Account Handler to join the business’ Mansfield headquarters in just four months and brings 17 years’ worth of insurance experience to the team. Having previously worked at Nottingham Prudential for 11 years, before moving to Swinton insurance for four years, Michael has a wealth of knowledge in both personal lines and small business insurance, dealing with a whole host of sectors and industries including motor insurance and home policies.

He then moved to AIPS insurance brokers where he gained further personal lines experience before moving into commercial broking.

Michael commented on his new role: “I had always known of Cowens as a regional broker that was extremely well respected both across the Midlands and nationally for their integrity and great approach to customer service. The move over to commercial lines in the past couple of years at my previous workplace has provided me the ideal platform for bigger and better things at Cowens - this new role as Senior Account Handler is definitely a huge step forward for my career.

“The client-base within my new role is varied and I am working within sectors such as marine and commercial property, dealing with cover such as professional indemnity and liability insurance. The role is a great new challenge for me. The office is a vibrant, fun place to be and the team have been nothing but welcoming since I started. I look forward to progressing in my role and working closely with my new clients to provide them with the best advice and service.”

Cowens Group has four branches across the UK. Following the company’s rebrand at the end of 2018, it now looks to expand its team of insurance and finance experts as its client-base grows.

CEO of Cowens Group, Paul Chaplin, said:

“We’re thrilled to welcome Michael to the team. His wealth of knowledge and experience across such a varied range of sectors made him the perfect candidate for the role as we expand our team of insurance experts. His personal approach when dealing with customers fits well with our ethos and I have no doubt that he will go far.”
