Congratulations are in order, as a West Midlands based insurance provider has been honoured with a prestigious Insurance Times Award.
Commercial Express was presented with the accolade for MGA Initiative of the Year at the famed ceremony in London on 22 November.
The award itself was won in respect of the popular, market-leading eLearning platform for insurance brokers, CE Learning: Online. The award entry detailed how Commercial Express offers the perfect solution to bridging the skills gap with a wide range of courses covering insurance compliance, product awareness and business skills, enabling brokers to further develop their all-round knowledge and skill set.
Presented by comedian Greg Davies at the evening ceremony at the Grosvenor Hotel, the awards trophy was collected by Commercial Express digital learning specialist, Jon Hill.
Commercial Express were up against strong contenders in the innovation category, including ARAG, Geo Specialty, Manchester Underwriting Management and Q Underwriting.
The category is designed to recognise the outstanding achievements of the insurance managing general agent community and the brief stated that judges looked for MGAs that can demonstrate how they have excelled in delivering an outstanding initiative.
Digital learning specialist, Jon Hill, said: "As proud as I am of the work we have done this year if you had told me six months ago that CE Learning: Online would be an ‘award-winning’ e-learning platform I wouldn’t have believed you.
"The judging process was tough, so to come home with the gold award is a huge achievement.
"It was a great evening and being recognised by our industry at this level is a massive endorsement. Now the work begins to expand and improve what is already a market-leading product."
Managing director, Duncan Pritchard, said: “We are extremely proud to receive this award.
“The performance and innovation surrounding our eLearning Platform have won many plaudits since its launch.
“eLearning plays a massive part in the Commercial Express proposition and we have again demonstrated by receiving this award that we are indeed the value-added MGA.
The next part of the journey is now about taking the platform to the next level and ensuring that CE Learning remains the market leader.”
Commercial Express is an MGA based in Brierley Hill, West Midlands.
