Premier Guarantee has appointed Keith Evans as its new deputy managing director to lead the North, South and key national surveying departments
Keith Evans joined Premier Guarantee almost three years ago as regional director having worked at NHBC for over 14 years as senior major projects manager.
Providing professional, technical, building and construction expertise relating to risk management, Evans is keen to get involved in cross-departmental activities to drive the business forward.
In his new role, he aims to improve customer and surveyor journeys, ensuring better integration of both of these areas of the business.
Drive the business forward
Liam Devaney, managing director of Premier Guarantee, said: “The new deputy managing director role was born out of a successful end to 2020 and a strong start to 2021 for the business. This key role will be instrumental as we plan for further growth in quarter two and beyond.
“The company has a strong belief in the benefits of promoting from within and we’re very pleased to appoint Keith to this newly created role.
“His wealth of knowledge and many years of experience will help us drive forward in improving loss ratios for our insurers and enhance customer service for our partners.”
When discussing what he enjoyed most about working at Premier Guarantee, Keith Evans, said: “I enjoy the freedom to be able to suggest improvements without being shot down or having to go to committee or quango.
“If an idea is seen as an improvement, mechanisms are established for this to be formalised, tested and executed with speed but not haste.”
Talking about his greatest achievements to date, he added: “At home, the birth of my daughter. At work, my whole career since leaving school to start an apprenticeship to where I find myself today, deputy managing director.”
