Denmead, Hampshire (PRWEB UK) 12 November 2012
Stride Insurance Group, an independent wholesale provider of property insurance, brings a year of strong growth to a close by announcing the appointment of experienced insurance professional Derek Cluderay to continue its regional expansion in Scotland.
Derek's role will be to develop partnerships with Scottish brokers and letting agents by offering Stride Group's bespoke insurance solutions including access to exclusive schemes, generous commissions and in-house underwriting.
Derek says of his new appointment:
"I am excited to be joining Stride at a time of real momentum in the property insurance sector in Scotland. The economy is opening up the buy-to-let market, in turn creating opportunities to provide insurance cover for the growing number of let properties. I have joined Stride Group as it has such a strong wholesale proposition and a rock solid reputation for service, and I'm looking forward to putting Stride's competitive offer to brokers and letting agents throughout Scotland."
Commercial Manager Claire Harris comments:
"With ten years experience at the likes of Endsleigh and Prudential, Derek Cluderay brings an impressive CV of business development roles and an array of contacts with broking and letting businesses in Scotland. I'm delighted to welcome Derek and confident he will help us continue to grow our business in the region."
Stride Insurance Group returns to BIBA Scotland at Airth in Stirlingshire this week to promote its wholesale property insurance offer to brokers. More than 300 brokers UK wide now have an agency with Stride Group, taking advantage of high quality cover at competitive rates from a range of major UK insurers.

Stride Insurance Group Managing Director Richard Lovegrove says of the event:
"It's great to be back at BIBA Scotland to introduce our new Account Manager for Scotland Derek Cluderay, to network with brokers and explain how we can help them grow their income from property insurance. We are demonstrating our wholehearted commitment to the Scottish insurance community in what I feel is a growth market, with great potential for Stride Group as an independent wholesale provider able to adapt to the broker's needs".
