Rothbury Wins the Trifecta at Insurance Industry Awards

Rothbury Insurance Brokers won the trifecta at the New Zealand Insurance Industry Awards held at Sky City last night.

Rothbury Managing Director Roger Abel said, “Winning all three awards is very humbling. I’m very proud of the team and what we’ve achieved. Providing a consistently high level of service to our clients is the driving force behind everything we do at Rothbury and we’re delighted to have industry recognition for the work we’re doing.”

“We put our Sales Training Program in place to upskill our brokers and help them become more sales focused as well as assist branch leaders to be sales coaches, and it’s had a huge impact.”

“I’d personally like to congratulate Kim on being named Broking Professional of the Year. Our culture and people are very important to us and the reason for our success. Kim is a great role model and really deserves this award.”
