Parker to develop business in the South East.

ABC Insurance, part of the LV= Group, has appointed David Parker as regional manager to lead its Maidstone operation and develop its business throughout the South East.

Most recently Parker was head of distribution for NIG. Prior to that he was area manager for Hibernian and regional manager for Hallmark. Broker distribution has been a major focus for Parker throughout his career.

He said: "II wanted to work for an organisation that has strong business ambitions and that values its employees. ABC Insurance delivers on both of these and I am looking forward to helping to take the business forward and at the same time, renewing some old acquaintances from my previous time in the Maidstone broker market.“

Mike Crane, head of broker underwriting for ABC, said: “We are delighted David is joining ABC Insurance. He has an excellent profile in the broker market and will be a great asset to our business. David has been based in the Maidstone area for over 20 years and this local knowledge will be a real strength. We have ambitious plans to grow ABC and will continue to hire people who share our hunger and desire to bring something new to the broker market.”
