Sagicor Underwriting has expanded its business development team with the addition of Anne Williams as new development manager.

Having previously been general manager of Partnerships at Broker Direct, Williams’s new role will continue to progress existing broker relationships and develop other distribution opportunities.

Sagicor Marketing and Broker Development head Paul Marden said that Sagicor fully recognize that the business relies on strong broker relationships and the effective use of technology. Anne’s appointment will help the company to continue to deliver this service philosophy.

Williams said Sagicor is a young company within the UK and represents an excellent opportunity to expand it’s current footprint and develop business opportunities with an increasing number of products coming on board.

"I’m looking forward to the opportunities of continuing the growth of the Sagicor brand and making it the underwriter of choice with our intermediaries," Williams said.

Sagicor Underwriting writes on behalf of Sagicor at Lloyd’s, and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Sagicor Europe.
