PEX Insure, the managing general agent (MGA) founded by Byron Shepherd, has chosen two separate SSP platforms to distribute its insurance products. Shepherd was formerly one of the heads of the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB), responsible for services including MyLicence and the NCD database.
The MGA has chosen SSP Pure Broking to retail standard motor cover, with further products to follow. In addition, as PEX Insure has its own delegated authority, it has also signed up to wholesale insurance products through SSP’s brokers.
These wholesale products – including motor excess protection, guaranteed car hire and vehicle breakdown – will be made available via SSP’s commercial e-trading platform.
Ron Atkinson, Distribution Director at SSP said:
“I am delighted that, after working with various software houses at MIB, Byron has chosen to partner with SSP for his new venture and to adopt multiple platforms.”
Byron Shepherd, CEO at PEX Insure said:
“I know Ron and Adrian Coupland [SSP’s Customer and Marketing Managing Director] very well from my work at MIB. If I need to call them, I can, and they get things done.
“It’s important to be able to speak to the key decision-makers quickly. Ron answers the phone and gets on with what needs to be done. You don’t get that with other software houses.”
