Independent insurance broker, Russell Scanlan has appointed a new senior executive to the team to help manage the growth that this 140 year old business is experiencing - as covid regulations continue to ease and old and new clients return in some numbers for Russell Scanlan’s specialist advice and services.
Noel Marriott who has moved from Mansfield based AIPS, will be joining the team in a significant role for the business: “I have in fact an existing connection to Russell Scanlan. Director, Simon Winiarski was my mentor back in the very early days of my career at a previous insurance broker and we have kept in touch ever since.
“The business has always been front of mind for me. Russell Scanlan has a great reputation and is widely known as a forward-thinking modern broker with traditional values when it comes to client servicing, and that’s a really good fit for me. The fact that it serves a wide range of clients across multiple sectors from construction to the motor trade is an added draw. Its independent status also means that it is pretty nimble as a business and able to respond quickly to new issues and to new developments in the industry.
“Also, my wife Joanne joined the team back in November 2020 as Commercial Manager and now as President of Nottingham Insurance Institute. Jo has nothing but positive feedback to share about the Directors at Russell Scanlan who are a very present and positive force within the business. So, when this opportunity came up it was an easy decision for me.
Simon Winiarski commented: “Really could not be more pleased to welcome Noel to the team. This has been a conversation ongoing for quite some time, that might have been concluded a little earlier – but the pandemic set such plans aside for a while. I have known him longer than I care to remember so I already know that he will fit with the existing team dynamic and the credentials and experience that he will bring will be invaluable.”
”This is just the right time to be investing in skilled team members who can lead by example and become crucial ambassadors for the business.”
Russell Scanlan is Nottingham’s longest established insurance broker and a heritage brand for the city and the region - celebrated its 140 years in operation this year. The firm has also been awarded chartered status by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) - one of only a handful of brokers in the East Midlands.
