We’re proud to announce that we’ve strengthened our advisory board and warmly welcome Ian Wainwright to the SchemeServe family.
Ian brings a wealth of experience to our advisory board. He spent nearly 30 years of his career with Ecclesiastical, latterly as its broking sales director. He then spent two years as a divisional director of broker E.Coleman & Co and a further five years with Broker Network, latterly as its broker development director until 2019.
Last year Ian also founded Bicton Consulting, a consultancy providing business support and advice to clients in the wider insurance community.
This is the third appointment to the SchemeServe advisory board this year. In March, SchemeServe welcomed Lloyd Hanks to the advisory board, while Sean Neal’s position to the board was announced the following month in April.
With Ian, Lloyd and Sean’s vast, joint industry experience SchemeServe will no doubt learn and benefit a great deal from their insight into the needs and challenges of the insurance sector.
Upon joining us, Ian said: “I’m delighted to be working with SchemeServe in an advisory capacity, helping them to maximise the potential its technology, platform and unique model has to offer the insurance sector.
“SchemeServe is a dark horse – they deserve to be heard – I very much look forward to helping them grow and build a stronger presence in the market during what promises to be an exciting period of growth.”
The SchemeServe advisory board consists of a select high profile and experienced insurance industry figures and clients. It offers valuable feedback and collaboratively helps to shape the future of SchemeServe.
Board members use their extensive network, skills, and years of industry experience to advise and act as an ambassador for SchemeServe, helping to raise awareness of the brand among brokers, networks, consolidators and MGAs.
The jobs market has been tough for 2020 and thousands have lost jobs as thousands more businesses have shut up shop. In spite of the difficult environment, SchemeServe have made a number of important hires and changes to the team this year, including:
Simon spent over 10 years programming from behind a keyboard, before transitioning across to management. A keen adrenaline junkie, whether that involves going up the mountain or over the edge of the cliff. He learned his management skills not just in the I.T world but also running youth camps and conferences, helping teenagers find a footing in life. He also really likes pie.
