Robin Peddell hired as research and product development manager

MMA Insurance has appointed Robin Peddell to the position of research and product development manager.

Reporting to MMA’s head of marketing Phelim Browne, Peddell will be responsible for developing the company’s product portfolio.

Prior to joining MMA, Peddell was product development manager for Aon where he focussed on SME and micro commercial lines. He previously held similar development roles with other brokers, including Marsh.

Phelim Browne said: “We have spent a lot of time this year talking to brokers about developing their SME business and positioning ourselves as a leader in this area.

"In order to maintain this going forward, we need someone whose entire focus is on ensuring our products lead the market and meet the needs of our brokers’ clients, while supporting our chosen distribution model and strategy. Robin brings 15 years’ experience of SME and micro commercial insurance and so I have no doubt that he will fulfil this role.”

Peddell added: “I am delighted to be joining the team at a time when the focus in the company, and indeed the market, is on bringing innovative solutions to the SME sector. I believe that this is an area of huge potential for brokers and MMA are genuinely committed to helping them exploit it.

"My goal now is to ensure that the process from research to product delivery results in a first class range that brings benefits to all trading partners.”
