Barbon Group appoints Ian Fraser to let property division

Barbon Insurance Group has appointed Ian Fraser as managing director for its Letsure division – a supplier of let property insurance solutions for tenants, landlords and agents.

Fraser brings almost 20 years insurance industry experience to this key role and will be responsible for increasing focus on the operational and organisational development of the Glasgow-based business, in line with Group objectives.

“I have joined at an exciting time for Letsure and look forward to the challenge ahead,” said Fraser. “Having listened to what customers had to say about our fantastic tenant referencing service, it was already apparent the business has some really great people. We will continue to work as a close team to give our customers exactly what they need and demand in today’s market.

He added: “ Growth will come from up and cross selling opportunities plus the current infrastructure provides a great base for developing new and innovative products and services. This will be vital in helping us achieve and maintain competitive edge whilst increasing market share to become the UK’s leading let property insurance specialist.”

Immediately prior to joining Letsure, Fraser headed up his own consultancy. Previous to this, he spent eight years working at Kwik-Fit Insurance where he was responsible for significantly increasing sales of general insurance products. He started his career at Swinton Insurance before becoming a financial advisor at United Friendly.

Martin Oliver, CEO of Barbon Insurance Group, said: “ I am delighted to welcome Ian to Letsure and Barbon. He has significant experience in managing and growing businesses and I am pleased he has joined our senior management team at this key phase of our development strategy.”
