Zurich has promoted David Brown to head of broker market for Scotland.

Brown joined Zurich from NFU Mutual in February 2014 as a trading manager in Glasgow.

He replaces Chris Sime who has been promoted to head of sales.

Zurich director of market management Roy Standish said: “David has made a great impact since joining us just over a year ago and it’s absolutely right that he takes over from the sterling role Chris played in making our Scottish presence much more visible while he was in the role.

“We of course conducted a full search for the right candidate both inside and outside the organisation – but it’s truly testament to the hot bed of talent we have at Zurich that we can promote from within.” 

Brown added: “A huge potential exists for us in the market north of the border and I’m really excited that I can help the build on the success of the team in serving this valuable broker community.”
