The British Insurance Brokers’ Association has named Alexandra Dredge of Thomas Carroll (Brokers) as its national Young Broker of the Year, and John Foster of Foster Leighton as winner of the Francis Perkins Award.
Hannah Bell of Jelf Insurance and Jillian Hollywood of Autoline were named as national finalists in the young broker award which recognises the performance of younger brokers and encourages commitment to the future professionalism of insurance broking.
Alexandra was named as winner of the award because of her outstanding achievement for Thomas Carroll (Brokers) and her ability to go ‘the extra mile’ to win business and help growth.
Both awards were presented at BIBA 2011 on the afternoon of Wednesday 11 May, just prior to BIBA’s second keynote speaker, Ed Stafford, where John Foster of Foster Leighton & Co Ltd was also named winner of the 2011 Francis Perkins Award due to his long standing commitment over many years for the West of England region.
John has held many positions on various committees since joining BIBA in 1977 and was selected for the award, which was instigated by BIBA’s first Chairman, in recognition of his longstanding dedication to the furtherance of the Association.
BIBA Chief Executive, Eric Galbraith said: “I was delighted by the high calibre of the entries that we received for the two awards and I’m honored to be able to recognise both an experienced and valued member alongside tomorrow’s stars of insurance broking.”
