Arista appoints new BDM in the North East

Arista has appointed Neil Wormald as broker development manager for the North East.

Wormald will be responsible for managing Arista's existing panel of broker partners and identify further opportunities for Arista in the region.

He has joined Arista from NIG where he was previously regional manager based in Leeds.

He will continue to be based in Leeds, reporting to Paul Dooley, Arista's regional manager for the North, and will further be supported by Arista's 12 strong underwriting team in Manchester.

Arista chief executive Charles Earle, said: “We are delighted to have secured someone of Neil’s proven abilities to support our broker partners and expand Arista's footprint in the North East. I know Neil well and his abilities are perfectly aligned to Arista’s expanding ambitions for the North East market; a crucial and long-established insurance centre for the UK.

"And one where independent brokers should react positively to what Arista has to offer them – strong accessible underwriters, and responsive service from a relatively exclusive underwriting market with A+ security ratings.”
