The British Insurance Brokers' Association (BIBA) has named Kayleigh Leatherdale, from Aon, as its national Young Broker of the Year for 2018.
Katie Freemantle, of Ruskin Square and Jessica Wonnacott, of Isca Barum Insurance Brokers, were named as national finalists for the award, which recognises the performance of younger brokers and encourages commitment to the future professionalism of insurance broking.
Since joining the sector in 2014, Ms Leatherdale has seen her career develop as well as becoming an essential part of the team at Aon.
The award was presented at the BIBA Conference 2018 by Inga Beale DBE, CEO of Lloyd's and president of the Chartered Insurance Institute.
BIBA chairman Lord Hunt of Wirral said: "Kayleigh is a truly impressive candidate and a deserving winner of the young broker award. She has stood out above others for her drive and ambition, she has demonstrated exceptional service to her clients and she has built strong relationships with both her clients and colleagues. It is highly likely that with this potential, Kayleigh has a very successful future ahead."
