We are well positioned to achieve significant growth over the coming months and years. The plans we market on behalf of insurers are for discerning clients who demand quality.
Dubai (PRWEB) February 27, 2015
UAE Medical Insurance (UMI) is pleased to announce the appointment of Colin Ward to the position of Corporate Sales Director. Based in Dubai, Mr. Ward brings a wealth of experience in the health insurance industry that he plans to leverage to help increase UMI’s reach and quality of service.
Mr. Ward joined the health insurance industry in 1995, working for BUPA in the UK. In 2006, he was tapped to help grow Lifecare International - an agent of BUPA Global - in Dubai. Following a strong period of successful growth, Ward moved to William Russell in Dubai where he helped the company establish a presence in the UAE. At William Russell, Mr. Ward designed and subsequently implemented the sales distribution strategy for broker held and direct customers, later building local customer service and claims teams in order to offer a stronger local presence.
At the end of 2014, Mr. Ward decided it was time to move on from William Russell and joined UMI. On his new position, he commented, “UMI, part of Medstar Insurance Brokers, has a strong and respected reputation in Dubai and we also have a well-trained, highly professional team. So, we are well positioned to achieve significant growth over the coming months and years. The plans we market on behalf of insurers are for discerning clients who demand quality, both in terms of product and service, with minimal restrictions, and worldwide coverage where required.” He continued, “The UAE is a very strong expatriate market, and as an independent health insurance broker, we are very excited to be providing clients with the right products, based on a full assessment of their needs and personal circumstances.”
