Nick Milton (pictured) is no longer the regional director for Midlands & South West within Pen Underwriting’s commercial division.
Promoted to the role of UK sales & distribution head, Milton will now be in charge not only of the day-to-day management of Pen’s 16-strong national sales team but also of the strategic expansion of the firm’s broker relationships in the country.
“I am incredibly excited to get started and build upon the good work already achieved by the Pen sales team,” noted the new head, who came onboard the managing general agent in 2015.
“We have a fantastic array of products and services within Pen across multiple distribution channels. My role now is to bring it all together and match the right products to the needs of our customers.”
Milton has more than 15 years of sales and management experience from the likes of Fusion Insurance Services and RSA Group.
Commenting on the appointment, commercial lines managing director Nick Wright said: “Nick is a strong people leader with a history of delivering sustained revenue growth and optimising client relationships, all of which make him the ideal candidate to lead our growing sales operations.
“This is a pivotal role that will drive forward our ambitious growth agenda and being able to appoint from within the existing Pen team is testament to the wealth of talent we have within our business.”
