Halo Insurance Services Limited, the innovative niche insurance provider, has appointed Ben Wooltorton as sales and marketing Director and member of the Board. Ben has many years’ business development and online marketing experience.
He joined SimplySwitch in its start up stage, and was responsible for growing online and offline distribution channels and business development until it was sold to the Daily Mail for £22m in 2006. Since then Ben has worked as a Sales and Marketing Consultant with clients in many different sectors on their online and offline sales, marketing channel development, brand and business strategy.
Halo Insurance Services limited was founded in 2009 by Ernesto Suarez, a leading insurance professional with over 10 years experience in the industry. Halo takes the hassle and expense out of car hire insurance by offering policies that are cheaper and more comprehensive than those offered at the car rental desks. Ben’s appointment is an important part of Halo’s expansion plans and key to the strengthening of its team. Ben will be responsible for business development and online marketing and has already secured a partnership with the Telegraph with its retail brand iCarhireinsurance.com. He will be looking to develop distribution relationships with brokers and affinity partners.
Ernesto Suarez, founder and CEO of Halo said, “We have seen significant growth in our first six months, but for this growth to continue we needed an expert in business development and online marketing to join the team. Ben has a proven track record and I look forward to working with him.”
Ben Wooltorton, sales and marketing Director said, “Halo Insurance and its retail brand iCarhireinsurance.com offer products that brokers, travel agents and partners will be proud to offer to their customers. They are not only more comprehensive than other providers but also cost less. I’m looking forward to spreading the word and welcoming more partners on board.”
Alistair Tillen, chairman of Halo said, “Ben worked for me at SimplySwitch and was incredibly effective. When I started working with Ernesto on Halo Insurance, I quickly recognised that his experience and skills would be invaluable for our growth plans and am delighted that he has agreed to join the team.”
