The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) has named Florence Dennis, Lead Client Adviser from Partners& as its Young Broker of the Year 2022.

Florence received the award at The BIBA Conference 2022 in Manchester in recognition of her hard work, passion and her commitment to improve the understanding of the insurance industry and to attract new talent into it.

The two runners-up from a field of exceptionally high quality, were Francesca Vernon from New Dawn Risk Group and Matt McCall of Raw Material Cover Limited.

The award recognises the performance of younger brokers and encourages commitment to the future professionalism of insurance broking.

Speaking about the finalists BIBA CEO, Steve White said: “The candidates were fantastic and all deserve recognition for their efforts and achievements which put our industry in a strong position for the future.  The judges were really pleased to see Flo reapply and take the top award after initially entering in 2016, we all believe that she is one to watch rise through the profession.

“Francesca has since joined BIBA’s International & Wholesale Brokers’ Advisory Board on the back of her impressive award entry demonstrating how today’s young brokers are already having a positive impact on the sector.

“Matt was a breath of fresh air who is not afraid to do things differently and push against the status quo. He has recognised the exciting opportunities that the industry has to offer, and we look forward to watching his business grow.”

The BIBA Young Broker Award is judged by a range of independent insurance professionals and recognises the career progression, sector participation, professional education and development of BIBA member brokers aged 35 years or younger.
