Insurer Brit promotes Sean Norris

Brit Insurance has promoted Sean Norris to head of group services.

Norris takes up the role immediately and will report to chief operating officer Malcolm Beane. Norris joined Brit Insurance in 2003, initially as group credit and cash manager.

He moved to the group operations function in 2005, where he most recently led the production services team where he was responsible for the development of a centralised underwriting service function, including technical entry, quality control, credit control and outward reinsurance teams.

In the new role, Norris will be additionally responsible for technical underwriting support, including wordings and policy production, and operations services, including premises, facilities and procurement.

Malcolm Beane said: “Sean has played an integral role in the function over the last four years and we are particularly pleased that we have filled this role from within the existing team. Sean’s knowledge of how our business works, and his wider industry experience, made him the obvious choice for this position.”
