On the move: the latest East Midlands hires

Callum Whiting

Russell Scanlan has further strengthened its growing SME team with a recent promotion.

Transferring from the company’s specialist Private Client department, Callum Whiting now takes on the role as SME account handler at Russell Scanlan, bringing ten years of experience in the insurance industry to the role.

Whiting said: “Russell Scanlan’s SME department is moving from strength to strength, so this is an exciting time to be joining such an innovative team that is fast becoming a prominent part of the business. I thoroughly enjoyed my time working in the Private Client department with great colleagues and I count my main achievement as being the strong relationships I built with a number of clients – a skill I look forward to carrying forward into my new role.

“The move to SME account handler is a great step towards my goal of building a career in the corporate sector. I’m looking forward to getting a real insight into our SME clients; how they work and importantly, how we can help them.

“The directors have been nothing but supportive and continually encourage all staff to develop their knowledge and skill set by taking on new opportunities and qualifications.”

Leicester-based company 3T Logistics has appointed an operations manager.
