In a continuous strengthening of its specialist motor propositions ERS is pleased to announce the appointment of James Neild as Regional Prestige Trading Underwriter for the North.

James has over 20 years’ experience in high net worth, high value motor insurance from senior roles held at Hiscox, Zurich Private Clients and, most recently, Oak Underwriting where James was Lead Underwriter.

ERS’ Prestige motor team provides brokers with tailored quotes and policies for owners of supercars, and vehicles from overseas as well as for clients who work in the fields of sport and entertainment. Since its launch two years ago ERS’ Prestige product has seen growth outstrip expectations, with James’ appointment reflective of its commitment to enhancing its regional coverage.

As we continue to invest in the quality of our proposition his established track-record in the niche and high net worth markets will be of immediate and substantial benefit to brokers in this key region.”
