Biba’s Steve White says that the winner is ‘one to watch’ 

Biba 2022: Biba has named Florence Dennis, lead client adviser at Partners&, its Young Broker of the Year 2022.

The award recognises the performance of younger brokers and encourages commitment to future professionalism in insurance broking.

Dennis received her award at the Biba Conference 2022 in Manchester. A Biba statement said that she had been selected for her passion and commitment to improve the understanding of the insurance industry.

The trade body’s chief executive, Steve White, said: “The candidates were fantastic and all deserve recognition for their efforts and achievements, which put our industry in a strong position for the future.

“The judges were really pleased to see Dennis reapply and take the top award after initially entering in 2016 – we all believe that she is one to watch rise through the profession.”


The two runners-up were Francesca Vernon from New Dawn Risk Group and Matt McCall of Raw Material Cover Limited.

The Biba Young Broker Award is judged by a range of independent insurance professionals and recognises the career progression, sector participation, professional education and development of Biba member brokers aged 35 years or younger.

White added: “Vernon has since joined Biba’s International and Wholesale Brokers’ Advisory Board on the back of her impressive award entry, demonstrating how today’s young brokers are already having a positive impact on the sector.

“McCall was a breath of fresh air who is not afraid to do things differently and push against the status quo. He has recognised the exciting opportunities that the industry has to offer and we look forward to watching his business grow.”
