Jimmy Carr, Toby van der Meer, managing director, Hastings Direct and Nick Turner from Axa who sponsored the award.
Bexhill based insurance broker Hastings Direct scooped a top honour at a prestigious industry award this week. Comic Jimmy Carr presented the company with the Personal Lines Broking Initiative of the Year at the British Insurance Awards.
Over two thousand people attended the British Insurance Awards and Hastings fought off stiff competition from rival insurers to win the award.
Hastings Direct is one of the UK's fastest growing insurance brokers. The judges recognised the complete transformation the company has undergone — doubling its staff and customer numbers in the past two years and were impressed by the high staff engagement scores and obvious passion that Hastings' staff has for the company.
Toby van der Meer, managing director, Hastings Direct: "This is fantastic recognition for our people and an important thank you to all our staff that have done such great work to help transform our business and look after our one million and counting customers."
