Two new directors at insurance broker

Steven Wright and Matt Franklin

Nottingham-based insurance broker, Russell Scanlan, has promoted two people to board-level positions.

The firm, which is based in Wellington Circus in Nottingham City Centre, has promoted Steve Wright to claims director and Matt Franklin to director.

The pair now join the senior team alongside managing director, Bryan Banbury, director Simon Winiarski and sales and marketing director, Mike Dickinson.

Franklin first joined Russell Scanlan in 2004 as an account handler. In his new role, he will be involved with the general running of the business, while continuing to look after clients.

Wright first joined Russell Scanlan in 2014, introducing the role of claims function, before taking on the responsibility of claims manager. In his new director role, he will retain responsibility for insurance claims while broadening his remit to oversee the HR and health and safety department.

Dickinson said: “We’re thrilled to announce the promotions of both Matt and Steve and welcome them as directors. Both have years of experience within the business and across the industry, so their knowledge will be invaluable in supporting both the continued growth of our client portfolio and the business itself.

“It has been an incredibly strange year for everyone, with remote working and the absence largely of being able to meet with clients, it has been a challenge. Nonetheless, I am incredibly proud of what the entire team has achieved, and these two new promotions are testament to Russell Scanlan’s success.”
