Runacres Insurance young professionals making their mark

Congratulations to our rising stars Charlotte Langridge and Charlotte Wilkins.

 

CHARLOTTE LANGRIDGE
Insurance broker
Age: 28

As a broker servicing a book of commercial clients in the fire and general market, Charlotte Langridge maintains existing relationships while also growing her portfolio.

She was also able to demonstrate her dedication to the industry and commitment to self-improvement when she completed both the level 4 and level 5 New Zealand Certificates in Financial Services within one 12-month period.
As a member of the Young Insurance Professionals, Langridge regularly advocates for the younger generation and supports those who are new to the industry. Already, she has been a mentor to other young colleagues and is currently exploring ways in which she can promote insurance as a career in secondary schools, universities and other groups and institutions.

“Charlotte is an intelligent articulate young person who impresses with her actions rather than words,” said Allan Silcock, general manager of administration at Runacres. “I have no doubt that Charlotte will rise to the top and be a leader at some point in the future.”

 

 

CHARLOTTE WILKINS
Domestic insurance broker
Age: 24

 

 

Maintaining a portfolio of domestic clients for all their insurance requirements, as well as developing new business around the Christchurch & Canterbury Area, Charlotte Wilkins has become an integral part of the Runacres team.

Targeting growth of over 100 per cent in the next 12 months, Wilkins has already significantly improved communications with existing clients and has excelled when it comes to cross selling products.

“Charlotte has impressed me with her dedication to the role and is always looking for ways of developing the portfolio and negotiates promptly and efficiently for all her clients with the relevant insurers,” said David Crick, CEO and managing director at Runacres.
“She is a very talented and career focused broker and an integral part of the Runacres team.”
