Local insurance broker pulls top industry award hat trick
Celebrations are being held by the Jelf team after they were awarded ‘Insurance Broker of the Year – UK’ at the British Insurance Awards, during an award ceremony held at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
The prestigious title is awarded to the UK broker who can clearly demonstrate a number of criteria, including:
- innovation (in product/scheme development; marketing; and technology/digital channels)
- profitable growth and customer retention;
- staff progression;
- how senior management and employees have embraced their role within their communities; and
- initiatives aligned with strategic and business goals.
This latest industry recognition sees the company attaining a hat trick of independent recognition for excellence – having also won Insurance Age’s ‘Insurance Broker of the Year’ at the UK Broker Awards 2014 in September, and Insurance Times’ ‘National Broker of the Year’ in December.
Commenting on the win, Phil Barton, Chief Executive (Insurance) of Jelf Insurance Brokers said: “This latest award win is further testament to the hard work and professionalism we strive for throughout the business and I’m delighted for the team’s achievement. We believe we are the only UK broker to have won all three of the industry’s top broker awards in a 12 month period. Quite an achievement and something I’m delighted to be able to share with our clients – yet another seal of approval in terms of the level of service and excellence that they can expect to receive from Jelf Insurance Brokers.”
