Meet The Team - Jon Elstone - Senior Business Development Manager

November 11th , 2020

 

Hi Jon, What’s your role in the team? 

I’m a Senior Business Development Manager.

What do you do day-to-day?

My role involves speaking to potential broker partners about how we can help them increase their income, gain more attention from some major Insurers and obtain great insights into their book of business. I also help our existing Broker partners get the most out of Broker Insights.

What’s your favourite part of the job? 

I like being able to offer a solution like Broker Insights to my Broker peers (having been a Broker for nearly 10 years), as I know it helps with problems I myself used to encounter all the time.

It’s also enjoyable to build great relationships with brokers and help them achieve their placement goals. But I would say my favourite part of the job is offering something that has so many benefits and brings great value to Brokers.

What do you enjoy about working at Broker Insights? 

I enjoy being part of something that is genuinely unique and new, and something that is also constantly evolving and expanding.

What’s your background and why does this make you an ideal person to do your current role? 

I have been in the Insurance industry since I was 19 years old, first in an Insurer for a few years, then, up until 12 months ago, as a Broker for both very small, and the very largest Brokers. This experience in the business-placing, client-facing side of Broking puts me in a good position to understand the real challenges and problems faced by most Independent Brokers.

What is your favourite quote? 

“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” Walt Disney

What are your top 3 favourite podcasts or books? 

The Lord of the Rings

The Warlord Chronicles by Bernard Cornwell

Around the NFL (podcast)

What are the values that drive you? 

I’m a big believer in the principle that, almost always, you get out what you put in. Or as Thomas Jefferson said “The harder I work, the luckier I get.”

What do you like to do outside work?

I love the NFL and have become a big fan over the past few years – I also play Football for my local team. I enjoy history, food, travel, most sports, and spending time with my family

Tell us a fun fact about yourself… 

When I was at College, I was selected to visit the United Nations in New York, attend a student seminar and meet Kofi Annan
