Coversure Insurance Services Keighley have been named as Highly Commended finalists for the prestigious ‘Broker Start-up of the Year Award’ at the UK Broker Awards on Friday. The judges were looking for a business that could demonstrate success in its short lifetime and one that showed great future potential. One of five finalists for this award, the judging panel have recognised franchise holder, Reana Bashir’s, dedication and commitment to growing her business and serving her customers.
Coversure Keighley: An Overnight Success
Since opening her business in March 2015 just after her daughter’s arrival into the world a few weeks earlier, Coversure Keighley has gone from strength-to-strength, quickly building a reputation for quality service and great value products within the local community. Growth has been rapid and Reana has had to recruit new members to her team to keep up with demand.
Reana has been so successful that she opened another office in Bingley in May 2017 as well as acquiring Coversure Rotherham in July. In two short years under Reana’s leadership the group has grown and they have now taken on 10 new staff members across her three offices.
Being a finalist for the ‘Broker Start-up of the Year Award’ at the UK Broker Awards is Reana’s second taste of national award success this year. Just a few weeks ago, the Insurance Times Awards announced Coversure Keighley were also finalists for the ‘Independent Broker of the Year’ Award, making 2017 a year to remember for this talented young businesswoman.
