Compass’s new UK sales director Scott Bennett will be responsible for its two networks Select and Westinsure

Compass Broker Services has appointed Scott Bennett to the newly created role of UK sales director.

Bennett joins the Arthur J Gallagher-owned network from fire alarms and property security firm Assured Fire and Security where he was a sales director.

Prior to that, he spent four years as sales director of Broker Network, having previously been regional sales director at Towergate Partnership since 2005, after a decade with broker Hill House Hammond.

At Compass he will be responsible for the two networks: Select, which is designed for brokers that generate more than £3m in gross written premium (GWP) and Westinsure, which is aimed at smaller independent brokers.

Compass managing director John Lincoln said: “Scott has a great track record in successfully growing member partnerships, and brings the ideal mix of skills and expertise to lead our sales strategy from the front.

“He will provide a strong complement to our hugely experienced team of regional business development managers as we look to maintain our impressive growth trajectory, by focusing firmly on delivering the most appropriate services, exclusive products and unrivalled market access to our members.”
