Supercover Insurance Ltd, administrator and provider of gadget insurance, announces that David Seel has been appointed to a consultancy role within the business. David, who has worked in the insurance industry for over 40 years will spearhead Supercover’s ongoing business development and help enable closer collaboration with an increased number of affinity partners.
Carmi Korine, managing director of Supercover Insurance welcomed David by commenting: “As the variety of gadgets, electronic devices and valuable personal items we own increases, we have been able to answer a specific need in the market. The business has grown threefold in the last two years alone and with David’s help, we see the business’ potential being greatly exceeded in years to come. We welcome David as the newest member of our team and I personally look forward to working closely with him.”
In his new consultancy role, one of David’s many priorities will be to develop a robust infrastructure to support new business. This will involve identifying and growing key intermediary relationships and aiding product developments.
David added: “The rising value and increased usage of portable electronic equipment is unmistakeable. For example, the average Londoner carries up to £1,034* worth of devices and personal items with them on a daily basis. However, more than 4.5m** mobile handsets are lost, stolen or damaged in the UK each year. It’s no surprise that gadget insurance is one of the fastest growing personal lines products in the UK so this is a very exciting opportunity for me to help develop this much sought after product.”
Prior to accepting a consultancy role with Supercover Insurance, David was managing director of Thornside pet insurance and chair of the ABI Pet Insurance Committee.
