A ROCK solid appointment

On the move

ROCK Insurance Group in the UK has appointed Phil Carr as director of sales. He will be identifying partnership opportunities, generating interest around ROCK’s pricing strategy, and ensuring profitable growth for the business.

Carr has more than 17 years of experience within the insurance industry, with at least 10 of these spent in senior positions at big name brands such as Sterling Insurance Group and most recently at Allianz Insurance UK and Allianz Global Assistance.

“ROCK excites me and after almost 20 years working within the insurance sector, I now have an opportunity to make a real difference with my experience, industry relationships and new ideas for delivering partnerships,” Carr commented. “This opportunity allows me to work within an agile, entrepreneurial, flexible and innovative organisation that has strong underwriting platforms, bespoke technology and profitable sales capability to make ROCK the strongest competitor in the travel insurance industry. They also have some exciting plans afoot so I’m keen to begin playing my part in driving these forward to further grow the success of the brand within the industry!”

Antony Martin, managing director of ROCK, expressed the Group’s excitement at Phil’s appointment. “The combination of his broad sector experience and profile in the corporate insurance market puts ROCK in a very strong position to grow further,” he stated. “ROCK already works with a growing number of affinity partners including Jet2, Mid Counties Coop, Debenhams and Admiral and we are confident that Phil will help ROCK to build on this success.”
