Press release: 06/01/2014

Following a number of successful account wins in 2013, LV= Broker has bolstered its commercial underwriting team with two new appointments.

Stephen Appleton has been appointed as Senior Underwriter and is responsible for underwriting complex risks within the South West. He has 19 years’ commercial experience across commercial combined, motor trade combined and motor fleet business. Stephen joins from NIG and is based in the Bristol office where he reports in to Steven Meredith.

We had a great year at LV= Broker with a number of key account wins. As we continue to grow in 2014 we want to ensure that brokers remain at the heart of everything we do and these new appointments will help us do that. Both Stephen and Chris have valuable experience that will help us grow our business within the South and South west regions. This is a very exciting time at LV= Broker and we are delighted to have them on board.
