Carole Nash has appointed Rob Black to head a new division that will provide specialist trade insurance for dealers. Rob formerly worked as an account manager in Norwich Union's commercial-lines team. He will use his ten years' motor-trade experience to implement new policies and schemes specifically designed for dealers.

Rob commented: "Our size, strength and trading pedigree means we are well placed not just to secure preferential rates for our trade customers, but to offer an award-winning claims team which has a much better grasp of the issues affecting the motorcycle trades than general commercial lines brokers."

Carole Nash has nearly 250,000 policyholders and has an annual income of £70 million and employs almost 400 staff at its Altrincham base and Dublin offices.
