Meet The Broker Apprentice 2017 Winner – Luke Perkins
At BHIB we pride ourselves on our team. We strongly believe that we have some of the brightest and most professional individuals in the insurance industry today. That is why, when our Account Executive Luke Perkins was shortlisted for the Axa Sponsored Broker Apprentice 2017, we were delighted!
Luke was immensely proud to be named amongst the final 6 candidates in the event, however his journey didn’t stop there! After an arduous and challenging process, he was named as the winner of Broker Apprentice 2017!
You can learn a little more about Luke, his background and the process he went through to win the event, by reading an excerpt of his interview with Insurance Age, below: –
▶ How did you begin in insurance? I started in personal lines with Swinton. It was my first job out of college. I then specialised at Forces Insurance selling personal lines to military personnel. My end goal was always to get into commercial. I went to Aon about a year later and ultimately found a position at BHIB. It is a role I can grow into.
▶ What was your favourite task? It was The Brewery task by a country mile. For my job I go into businesses and find out what they are doing well, report back, make presentations and get quotes looking to work with insurers. The task naturally fell into place and there was the opportunity to help other people and make sure everyone enjoyed it.
▶ On the flipside, what was your least favourite? The marketing one. I concentrated too much on what I knew about the real estate product rather than how to market it. Standing up in front of people with a 10 minute presentation of something that they could in theory use was quite daunting.
