Commercial insurance broker Konsileo has made two senior hires in a bid to ramp up its northern presence.
It will see Chris Fitzgerald join as client director for Liverpool and Lisa Petherick being appointed client director for Warrington.
Konsileo now has 15 commercial insurance brokers across the UK and agencies with over 70 insurers since its launch in 2017.
Fitzgerald is a specialist in professional indemnity for architects, consulting engineers and solicitors, and also has experience in the construction, biotech and digital sectors.
He joins Konsileo from PIB Insurance Brokers where he assumed the role of Northern development manager and a cyber insurance expert.
His experience spans 30 years, including running his own commercial insurance brokerage, FRD Risk Solutions, and senior roles at JLT, Astbury Wren and Fish Corporate.
Fitzgerald said: “I am excited about joining Konsileo as its open and transparent culture encourages genuine collaboration within the organisation so that clients receive a truly personal and professional service.
“It also has a strong vision of what the future of insurance broking should be and with no legacy technology it can be truly innovative to reduce administrative functions so that client facing staff are able to spend more time getting to know and servicing their clients more effectively – a winning formula”.
Petherick has over 20 years’ commercial insurance experience. Her previous roles include operations director and board member at Broker Assistance, team manager for global risks at AIG, and account executive at Willis UK.
She began her insurance career at Independent Insurance in 1995 as team underwriter and then manager.
Lisa Petherick commented: “I am thrilled and honoured to be joining the Konsileo team at such an exciting and important time. Having spent over 20 years in the insurance profession, in both insurer and broking roles, I’m looking forward to working with brokers who are professional risk advisors focused upon providing clients with the most suitable risk transfer options for their business and trading needs.
“The data enabled insurance broking platform and client portal will be invaluable in developing a real understanding of clients risks, both insurable and non-insurable.”
