DAS, a UK based legal expenses insurance provider, has promoted business development manager (BDM) Andy Parkinson as head of Corporate Partnerships to oversee the day-to-day responsibility of the corporate sales channel.

As a consequence of this promotion, Alex Manning will become Parkinson’s successor as BDM.

The corporate division of the DAS sales force oversees business relations with insurers, banks and major financial institutions and accounts for over £50m of the company’s premium income.

DAS Sales and Marketing head Lyndon Willshire said that the Corporate Partnerships division and the relationships we have with the business partners are extremely important to DAS.

Andy and Alex have a huge amount of experience having worked in within our corporate team for a considerable proportion of the 20 plus years that they have both been at DAS. I am confident in their ability to continue making significant contributions to the success of our Corporate Division, Willshire said.
