Be Wiser chairman Neil Macmillan highlighted that Brinley was ”a highly experienced C-suite insurance executive who has already made a positive impact on our business”.
Brinley commented on the role, “Be Wiser has invested in building a really strong team over the last year, and we’re now well-placed to make the most of the new opportunities arising in the UK commercial and personal lines markets as the economy emerges from the pandemic and life after Brexit.”
