Personal Touch Insurance has appointed Richard Garland to set up its new specialist healthcare “supermarket” for intermediaries.
Garland will become PTI health care director, having 20 years experience in the financial services industry, including being national account manager at BUPA.
PTI is working to develop a network of financial services “superstores” in every town to become the “Tesco of the financial services marketplace” and says the healthcare supermarkets are integral to this.
Garland will be targeting those intermediaries who are already health care specialists wanting to expand their role, as well as those wanting to get into the market for the first time and those not wanting to become healthcare experts, but to find a partner that they can introduce clients to.
He will also be arranging a network of training and roadshows targeted at IFAs who currently do not do business with PTI.
