TEn Insurance Services Ltd is pleased to announce the appointment of Stephen Bottoms as its new Broker Inspection & Development Manager (BIDM) for the North, based near Manchester and in North Wales.
Stephen started out as a graduate trainee with Royal Insurance and, since then, has accumulated 30+ years in the Insurance industry; most recently in a compliance role at UKGI.
He has also worked for insurers such as the Independent, AXA and Quinn, whilst additionally accumulating several years in regional and national broking, as well as a period with premium financier Aascent.
Director James Sharp comments; “We are delighted to welcome Stephen to the team, not least because he brings with him a wealth of experience in almost every area we could possibly imagine.
During the FCA Thematic Review of AR Networks last year, we were one of those visited, although, happily, we were not one of those censured. Nevertheless, we have learned much from the experience and from the regulator’s subsequent and constructive feedback.
Stephen’s input will be invaluable over the coming months and years, as TEn responds to the opportunities and challenges of an ever-changing economic and regulatory environment.
Despite the fact that Stephen is an Everton supporter, he has previously worked with our other BIDM, Ray Heap. They get along fine, even though Ray supports Liverpool.”
