Zurich wins UK national sales award

Zurich’s internal consultant management team has won the sales management team of the year award at this year’s UK National Sales Awards.

The event, the tenth to date, was held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London last week.

UK TV presenter Kate Silverton presented the award to Zurich Intermediary Group operations and internal consultancy director Jason Cripps.

The UK National Sales Awards are independent and are designed to recognise the best in the professional sales industry.

Being able to work together as a team, as well as with the wider Zurich community, enables us to adapt to any challenges and opportunities we face, delivering a superior service to our customers.”
