Verlingue has appointed James Hall and Sam Foster as client directors at its Birmingham office.
The broker said the hires form part of its strategy to expand across the Midlands and Southwest region by providing its full range of risk management, broking, and employee benefits propositions to corporate and mid-corporate sized businesses.
Hall (pictured left) has more than 12 years’ insurance broking experience, most recently at broker Gallagher where he was a corporate account executive, having started his broking career at Jelf Insurance Brokers in 2011.
Foster (pictured right) has over six years’ experience of insurance broking, having previously worked at brokers PIB Group and WW Group.
Ian McKinney, director, corporate – Midlands and South West, said: “When we opened our Birmingham office in April this year, we made it clear that we believe there is a huge opportunity for Verlingue to grow in the Midlands and South West by delivering high quality relationships and technical expertise to clients in the mid-corporate market.
“We have been delighted by the number of high-quality professionals who have expressed a desire to join Verlingue now and in the future. The addition of both James and Sam immediately enhances the capability of our team and demonstrates that we have a compelling proposition for professionals seeking an exciting career challenge.”
