Local insurance broker wins industry award

Stephen Ward, an account executive from local insurance broker, Bluefin, was recognised as Claims Individual of the Year at last night's Insurance Times Claims Excellence awards.

During the Cumbrian floods of late 2015, Stephen Ward's home was flooded along with many of Bluefin's clients. With four local offices in the region in Penrith, Carlisle, Cockermouth and Kendal, Bluefin's executives worked tirelessly to help support their clients and the local community. Stephen supported his clients through the whole process as well as helping the local community by providing free advice using social media and sitting on a local "Flooded Business Group" with local businesses, giving talks and advice.

 Robert Organ, CEO of Bluefin, commented: "This was a thoroughly well deserved recognition for Stephen's efforts during the Cumbrian floods and I'd like to personally thank him for his extraordinary endeavour. People like Stephen show what makes Bluefin so great; commitment, hard work and real dedication. A big well done."
