Specialist PMI provider and mutual insurance society, CS Healthcare, is pleased to announce the appointment of Adrian Fowler as Sales & Business Development Leader

The appointment follows a broad review of the Society’s Sales, Marketing and Distribution Strategy in conjunction with award-winning strategy and transformation consultants, Curzon & Company.

Adrian joined CS Healthcare late last year from global insurance provider ACE, where he was Commercial Director, with responsibility for refining and progressing the sales strategy for protection and health insurance products in the employee benefits worksite market.  He brings substantial experience and expertise from ACE and his former roles, which includes a lengthy spell with Assurant Solutions, where he was European Marketing Director.

Adrian will focus on CS Healthcare’s strategic growth priorities – deepening and broadening the Society’s relationships within the civil and public services, as well as the new target markets of Education, Charities and Not-for Profit organisations.  He will be reviving relationships within the broker community and will have direct responsibility for building and leading CS Healthcare’s internal and external sales force to drive this strategy forward.

Commenting on the appointment, James Parker, Chief Executive at CS Healthcare said, “Having completed a broad review of our Sales, Marketing and Distribution Strategy, we have provided our Board and Executive Committee with a clear plan as to how we will deliver the Society’s organic membership growth targets over the next three years.

“We have been keen to build our market share across the broad Public Sector for some time, and an exercise in market segmentation, as part of our review, has revealed significant opportunities for growth in occupational sectors complementary to our core Civil Service membership – namely Education, Charity and Not-for-Profit organisations, NHS/Health workers, the Emergency Services and Armed Forces.  Building a strong sales team, with experience in health insurance and B2B business development, is fundamental to our success in delivering the targets set, and to building our membership base in these key sectors, so I am delighted to welcome a seasoned insurance professional of Adrian’s standing to the Society at this time.”

On joining CS Healthcare, Adrian said: “Healthcare has rarely been higher on the news agenda.  I am pleased to be joining the Society at such an exciting time, am eager to get started in deepening our existing relationships and broadening our reach to new partners in complementary sectors, and to building a successful sales team and culture.”
