PAVEY Group has long promoted the development of its staff, and 2014 has already brought great recognition for the Torbay and Exeter-based Insurance and Financial Services firm.
Pavey Group is a strong supporter of the local Insurance Institute and was proud to see Helen Jones, senior account manager, representing the Exeter Institute as president for 2013/2014.
The Chartered Insurance Institute is the world's leading professional body for the Insurance and Financial Services Industry, and is committed to maintaining the highest standard of technical competence.
The role as president involves Helen leading the Exeter Institute Council, arranging regulatory seminars and training courses, along with fundraising for Helen's chosen charity, Rainbow Living.
The group has been a great supporter of the Paignton Secretarial College apprenticeship scheme.
The Insurance Institute of Exeter has recognised Lauren White as Young Professional of the Year 2013/2014.
Lauren joined Pavey Group as an apprentice in 2010 and now holds a position as commercial account handler, managing a portfolio of clients.
Julian Head, team leader and senior commercial account handler, was also awarded his Advanced Diploma in Insurance.
Julian has mentored a number of his colleagues who are working towards their insurance qualifications by leading weekly study groups.
Nick Sanders, director at Pavey Group, said: "I am delighted to see our claims service being recognised by the Insurance Times and, in particular, claims manager, Jan Newman who has been shortlisted as a finalist for the Outstanding Broker Claims Individual of the Year category at the Claims Excellence awards being held in London, this month."
