Legal expenses and assistance provider ARAG has expanded its corporate sales team with two new hires.
ARAG has named Jay Curtis as corporate account manager. Curtis has nearly 25 years of experience in the insurance industry – half of which has been spent in the legal expenses market. His career includes claims, underwriting and business development roles, and he has worked for several major brands, such as RSA and Hiscox.
In a release, ARAG said that Curtis joins the ARAG team in time for the BIBA Conference on May 11, where he will serve as ARAG’s representative.
Meanwhile, ARAG has also appointed Kevin Stoker as corporate account handler. He has more than 15 years working in the financial services sector, and has spent the past five years within the legal protection market.
“I’m very pleased that we have been able to attract two candidates with such valuable experience to join our corporate team,” said ARAG UK sales manager Matt Warren. “Jay and Kevin both have a huge amount to offer, and I know that they are both looking forward to getting to know our many corporate business partners.”
ARAG posted gross written premium (GWP) under management at £51.6 million in 2021 – marking its 12th straight profitable year – a 20% increase from £42.8 million in 2020.
