New Managing Director for Letsure

Barbon Insurance Group has announced the appointment of Ian Fraser as Managing Director for its Letsure division
jml Property Services have been Letsure Landlord and Tenants insurance introducer agents since early 2002 and had been offering these products via a dedicated link to the Letsure website. Erinaceous Insurance Services the parent company of competitor HomeLet bought Letsure and from October 2007 jml Property Services were no longer able to make FSA compliant introductions to the Letsure website as these had to be referred to the HomeLet site.
Erinaceous Insurance Services Limited started tol operate as Barbon Insurance Group Limited from August 2008 following the sale to an investment company owned by three major UK banks - HBOS, HSBC and Lloyds TSB.
The press release from Barbon says"Ian brings almost 20 years insurance industry experience to this key role and will be responsible for increasing focus on the operational and organisational development of the Glasgow-based business, in line with Group objectives.

"I have joined at an exciting time for Letsure and look forward to the challenge ahead," commented Ian. "Having listened to what customers had to say about our fantastic tenant referencing service, it was already apparent the business has some really great people. We will continue to work as a close team to give our customers exactly what they need and demand in today's market.

He continues: " Growth will come from up and cross selling opportunities plus the current infrastructure provides a great base for developing new and innovative products and services. This will be vital in helping us achieve and maintain competitive edge whilst increasing market share to become the UK's leading let property insurance specialist."

Immediately prior to joining Letsure, Ian headed up his own consultancy. Previous to this, he spent eight years working at Kwik-Fit Insurance where he was responsible for significantly increasing sales of general insurance products. He started his career at Swinton Insurance before becoming a Financial Advisor at United Friendly."
This is very good news for jmlProperty Services as within a couple of weeks, they can introduce Landlords and Tenants to Letsure products again via a dedicated link to the Letsure website.
