The good news keeps on coming for Bristol based insurance broker Hayes Parsons Insurance.

After being named the Insurance Institute of Bristol’s Achiever of the Year in 2015, Account Handler Ryan Legge has gone one better and won the prestigious award again in 2016.

The award was announced at the Institute’s 125th annual dinner on Friday 18th March which was attended by over 300 people including the vice-president of the Chartered Insurance Institute, the Lord Mayor of Bristol and ex-rugby player Kyran Bracken.

Ryan has been employed at Hayes Parsons Insurance since September 2012 when he was originally taken on as part of their apprenticeship scheme.

As well as excelling in his day to day role, he now acts as a role model and mentor to younger members of staff and new apprentices coming into the company.

He also acts as ambassador for the Chartered Insurance Institute in Bristol by speaking at events and championing the insurance industry to those looking to start their careers.

Managing Director, James Woollam says, “Once again, this is a fantastic achievement for Ryan and I am proud to have him working at Hayes Parsons Insurance. This second win has strengthened my belief that apprenticeships are the way forward for our industry; we are fully committed to supporting young talent in the area by expanding our apprenticeship programme over the coming years and I encourage young people in Bristol to consider a career in insurance.”
