Kevin Thomson, sales director at Connect, said: “Over the past 12 months, we have achieved significant growth in the number of our appointed representatives, as well as the number of brokers coming to us for our referral and packaging services.
“We are putting plans in place to grow the Connect network further and significantly over the next few months.
“We are therefore strengthening our relationship management team to ensure we can continue to provide the high level of support all brokers have come to expect from us.
“Darren and Emma will be valuable additions to the team and will continue [our] focus on adding as much value as possible to the brokers we work with.”
