New recruits at WPS

Following a successful 2013 and continued growth we are pleased to announce a number of additions to our client service team.


The Small Business and Private Clients team has received a boost from Alex May, a graduate trainee who is keen to learn the ropes and will be undertaking his first exams soon.


Karlie Baker is our newest member of the Claims team. Her previous insurance experience has already made her an invaluable part of the team.


Here at WPS we are committed to providing excellent service to our customers whether they are based in Scotland or Cornwall and with this in mind we are pleased to announce the appointment of two experienced account executives. We know that resource is a key component in promoting growth and expansion in any business and with the addition of Josh & Paul we will continue our ethos of providing a high level of personal service to our clients wherever they may be.


Both Josh and Paul have joined us from Cornish Mutual and chose WPS because of our client focused approach and continuing success in the South West.

“I am extremely excited to be given the opportunity to work with WPS and I am particularly looking forward to meeting my new clients in order to look after their insurance needs.  I have a varied background having spent time in the British Army as well as working for various insurance companies and banks .  As a Commercial Account  Executive my role will be to fully understand my clients insurance and risk requirements and to recommend the appropriate solution for each individual, with much help from an experienced and dedicated team of account and claims handlers.  In my spare time, you will usually find me on my bike as I am a particularly keen cyclist.  I also follow a range of sports and like to attend as many Exeter City or Exeter Chiefs games as possible.”

“I would like to start by saying I am excited and grateful to the opportunity WPS Insurance Ltd has given me. My insurance career started with being a Personal Underwriter quickly moving on to be an area Inspector for a local insurer meeting the needs of its members in predominately the rural sector. I am looking forward to expanding my insurance knowledge by working for a local and reputable broker which has Chartered Status. As an Account Executive I will be dealing with larger commercial cases with help and support from dedicated Account Handlers. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my family visiting the various beaches in Cornwall making the most of this beautiful part of the world.”






WPS Director Colin Watts

“We are delighted to have Josh, Paul, Alex and Karlie join our team and are confident that they will provide clients with the level of service we aim to provide and which differentiates us from many of our competitors. As Chartered Insurance Brokers, WPS will continue to invest in all our staff so that we can set ourselves apart in a sector where personal and professional service is still valued.”
