Commenting on the Partnership Marek Mossakowski, Director of Brand and New Business, at RatedPeople.com said: "At RatedPeople.com, whilst our primary focus is to connect homeowners with quality, local tradesmen, we also strive to deliver our customers exceptional value. Brightside not only won the tender based on its ability to provide exclusive, yet competitive insurance
products to our tradesmen, but we also felt they are perfectly aligned with our brand values."
Interim CEO of Brightside, Paul Chase-Gardener, added: "We are pleased to be working with RatedPeople.com – like Brightside, RatedPeople.com has a strong focus on innovation and delivery. We are confident that this opportunity will be of long-term benefit to Brightside and RatedPeople.com as well as to our insurer panel, who have a substantial appetite for the type of business that the Partnership is expected to generate.
"Working with Affinity businesses is key to reaching our long-term aim of being a major insurance distribution business. Adding another household name to our partnership network represents a significant opportunity to develop our distribution reach, not only with the expected commercial vehicle and public liability policies, but also through our established SME cross sales business
