New Business Development Manager for Fowler Penfold in Newbury

Press Release   •   Feb 13, 2014 12:10 GMT

Chris Clacy will be working for Fowler Penfold, part of the A-One Insurance Group, to expand their already flourishing office in Newbury.

Chris brings with him many years’ experience and previously was the Regional Development Executive for Zurich, looking after 130 brokers across the South of England.

He said, “Although I did really enjoy the role with my previous company, in my opinion you can't beat broking which is why I was delighted to be offered the role within the enormous and well renowned A-One Group, working for Fowler Penfold.”

Chris built up his commercial knowledge working for an insurance broker in Wokingham, where he specialised in the motor trade and covered insurance solutions for a brief spell.

Chris started his career with a well-known high street insurance broker and during his time there was responsible for all car clubs including Mustang Owners Club of Great Britain, BMW Land and Scoobynet;  the latter being two of the largest specialist enthusiast forums on the internet.

In his spare time Chris enjoys golf and currently has achieved an enviable handicap of just 7. 

However, he also enjoys running as well as supporting Fulham FC – although neither of these last two activities are proving very satisfying for him at the moment. 

Chris said, “One gives you excruciating pain and tires you out completely.  The other is running...”

A spokesman for Fowler Penfold said; “We are thrilled with Chris’s appointment and already 2014 is proving to be a good year for him – and us.  He has started the year with a new job and a new baby although he may need to revisit his recreational sport and his football team choices!”
