Craig Brown has been appointed as the new director of Legal & General’s Intermediary division, set to lead its distribution in both the protection and general insurance markets.
Having worked in multiple areas across Legal & General over the past five years prior to taking on the new role – his most recent position being key account director – Brown’s expertise in the sector will continue to grow.
Previously, Brown was also head of claims commercial management and head of supplier management, both within the insurance field.
“Over the past five years, Craig has more than shown a commitment to intermediaries and a breadth of knowledge in the protection of GI markets,” Mark Holweger, managing director at Legal & General Insurance, said.
“He has fostered very strong relationships with our key intermediary partners and we are confident that his experience in the sector will drive continued success for Legal & General’s insurance business.”
Commenting on his new role, Brown said: “Advisers continue to play a vital role in ensuring people across the UK are adequately insured for the unexpected.”
“Over the past five years, I have had the pleasure of building some great relationships with intermediaries in the protection and GI space.”
He added: “I look forward to developing these existing and new relationships in this new role as Legal & General does its part to help close the insurance gap.”
