Jelf Shrewsbury appoint Business Development Co-ordinator: Kelly Lawson

We are delighted to announce that Kelly Lawson has joined the Shrewsbury office as business development co-ordinator.

Kelly has worked within the wider Jelf business having been a member of the Beaumonts team acquired by Jelf in 2014, but worked closely with the Shrewsbury office on a number of initiatives. Kelly has specific expertise in the tyre, transport and logistics, food and construction industries which have fuelled Shrewsbury’s growth in recent years.

Branch Director, Ben Harrison, commented: 
"I have worked closely with Kelly now for a number of years and it seemed a natural fit for her to become part of our team in Shrewsbury and play a pivotal role in our growth strategy. Our success has come from sectors where Kelly excels as we have the tools and solutions. For these sectors Insurance is far more than transactional, we play a crucial role in the protection of their balance sheet and Kelly understands the importance of this."

Kelly joined the team in December and is a keen baker bringing home-made sausage rolls, flap jack and cake on her first day. She has already made a positive contribution to sales meetings and brings bags of energy.

Kelly commented:
"I came to Jelf 6 years ago, having come from a completely different industry and absolutely loved it from the word go! I have worked with Ben Harrison since day 1 and really admire his work ethic and total passion for the industry. When asked if I would like to work full time with Ben, I jumped at the chance. I absolutely love working with the team here at Shrewsbury. I like establishing strong relationships with our prospects and find it really gratifying seeing this develop even further when become clients. When seeking new prospects, I like to dive deep into different industries and to understand customer needs and requirements. It is really rewarding to see our team provide solutions for our clients and deliver excellent client service along the journey."
