Commercial lines underwriting specialist Arista Insurance has appointed Bethany Wilkes as assistant underwriter at its Birmingham office.
Bethany will report to regional manager Scott Hallett and provide administrative support to underwriters, freeing them to focus more on underwriting and providing quotations. This will directly support the effort to further improve service to Midlands’ brokers and ultimately grow accounts, taking the region forward in line with its aspirations.
Prior to Arista Bethany worked for a local insurance broker as a personal lines account handler before progressing to commercial lines.
Arista head of regional operations Euros Jones commented: “It is vital to have a range of skills and abilities within any successful organisation and Bethany will help the Birmingham team to provide quicker, more efficient ways of dealing with brokers. We listen very carefully to our brokers and Bethany’s appointment will support underwriters, giving them greater flexibility to deliver the levels of service our brokers require.”
