Matthew Collins promoted to newly created role.

Oval has announced the appointment of Matthew Collins as National Broking Director.

In a statement the broker said that the newly created position would play an important part in the broker's development.

Howard Pepper, managing director of Oval said: “I would like to congratulate Matthew on this new appointment and wish him every success in his new role.

"This has been a period of dramatic growth for Oval and I am confident that Matthew will ensure that we continue to grow and develop in a way that is both positive and beneficial to Oval, our clients and insurers.”
