TL Dallas bolsters its commercial team

TL Dallas, has appointed a highly experienced corporate account executive following a strong first quarter for its commercial division.

Sara Chapman has worked in the insurance industry for 35 years and has been in broking for the last 26 of those. Based in Leeds for most of her career, Sara has worked for both independent brokers and larger corporates and has many long-standing clients from across multiple industry sectors.  

Sara said: “I have worked for many clients in the education sector, as well as charitable organisations over the years, but I don’t specialise in just one sector or solely the Yorkshire region. With previous clients based from Kent to Northumberland and everywhere in between, I plan to grow my account portfolio at TL Dallas across the whole of the UK.

“Every client is different, be it a multi-academy education trust, a manufacturing business, or an individual with a varied commercial property portfolio, each needs a trusted insurance broker that understands their business and can ensure they have the most appropriate levels of cover. They also need to feel reassured that should the worst happen, their broker is on hand to help and because TL Dallas has its own in-house claims division, this role really appealed to me.

“Another reason I chose to join TL Dallas is because it is on such a positive growth path. The firm has recently opened three more regional offices in North Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Cumbria and many former colleagues have made the move to the family and employee-owned business. With a great reputation and admirable values, I knew it was the right move for me.”

TL Dallas has a 97-strong commercial team, which is based across the firm’s 12 offices throughout the UK offering a full range of insurance services. Sara will be based at the firm’s head office in Bradford.

Commercial Managing Director, Tim Mortimer, said: “As we retain our long-standing clients, and win new ones, we are keen to recruit talented, experienced brokers like Sara to the business. In the last three years we have grown our commercial team by 43 and delivered 17% revenue growth in the first quarter, whilst never losing sight of what sets us apart from our competitors. We are proud of our independence and are dedicated to our people and our clients. We believe Sara will be a valuable asset to our commercial team and welcome her to the TL Dallas family.”
