Global speciality insurance business Direct Insurance Group has appointed Matt Field to its board as Group Sales & Marketing Director.
Field has been with Direct Insurance Group since 2016 when he joined as Business Development Manager for the North for its UK wholesale broking business DILM (Direct Insurance London Market).
In 2017 he was promoted to Head of Marketing & Development, where he has been overseeing the sales and business development teams as well as Head of Group Marketing and UK Sales.
Field said: “I’m delighted and honoured to be appointed to the Board. Anyone who knows me also knows that Direct Insurance runs through my veins – like a stick of rock. I’ve been with the Group now for just five years, but in that short time I’ve been a part of their hugely exciting journey and can’t wait for the next chapter. Its infectious entrepreneurial spirit drives us all forward – you can’t help but be impressed by the people and the Group’s collective ambition.”
David Bearman, Chief Executive Officer for Direct Insurance Group added: “I’m delighted to welcome Matt to the Board. He’s a really nice guy. He’s talented, driven and committed to our vision. As a Group we’ve now surpassed the $500bn milestone so we’re well on our way.
“But for me this business is all about our culture and our people, seeing them grow. That’s why we’re wholly focussed on becoming the best global re/insurance specialty wholesale business in the world; whilst that might mean we also become the biggest, the primary motivation is always to be the best.”
