Kennedys sponsors Young Achiever of the Year Award

Jaymin Patel of RSA was named Young Achiever of the Year at last night’s British Insurance Awards (BIA), with Kennedys once again proudly sponsoring this important category.

The 24th annual awards ceremony – the industry event of the year - was held at The Royal Albert Hall and attracted over 2,000 guests from across the UK to celebrate the insurance industry’s best achievements over the past 12 months.

The Young Achiever of the Year category, which we have sponsored since 2015, was open to anyone working in the insurance industry aged 30 years old or under, and recognises individuals that made significant strides in their professional development over the past year and clearly demonstrated their contribution to their team or department.

Jaymin was shortlisted against five other nominees from across the industry, in a very competitive category. He is pictured collecting his award from Partner Richard West, and comedian Katherine Ryan, in the photo below.

Congratulations to Jaymin on this excellent achievement, and to all those nominated.

During last night’s event, Insurance Post confirmed our sponsorship of a new initiative - Claims Apprentice – an innovative video series designed to help up-and-coming individuals working in the claims market. Based on the BBC show ‘The Apprentice’, this series will further reinforce our support for the younger generation of claims professionals in the insurance industry.
