Ryan Legge named BIBA Young Broker of the Year 2019


Ryan Legge, Account Executive at Hayes Parsons Insurance Brokers, wins once again and is named Young Broker of the Year by the British Insurance Brokers Association (BIBA).   The Young Broker of the Year Award gives young brokers the recognition they deserve for their outstanding performance and contribution to broking and aims to inspire and encourage commitment to the insurance industry. The Young Broker Award 2019 took place at the BIBA conference in Manchester, and the award was presented to Ryan by Huw Edwards and Professor Green.

Ryan is a determined and ambitious individual and at the young age of 25, has achieved a great amount throughout his professional career already. Ryan started at Hayes Parsons just over 6 years ago as an apprentice and has worked hard over the years to build up his knowledge and reputation as an insurance broker.

Ryan commented: “I’m absolutely delighted to win the BIBA Young Broker award. It’s great recognition for me personally, but also a testament to our apprenticeship scheme, the internal support and the opportunities here at Hayes Parsons. The award was part of a three-day conference in Manchester hosted by BIBA, with a whole host of insurers showcasing their products with incredibly impressive exhibition stands. The award was obviously the highlight, and I can’t wait to build on this achievement in the coming years.”

During his time at Hayes Parsons, Ryan has worked in several departments giving him an all rounded experience with lots of variety and has gradually worked his way up to his current position as an Account Executive where he specialises in the life science and food and drink sectors. This success was recognised twice by the Bristol Insurance Institute where Ryan won Achiever of the Year in 2015 and 2016. He also won the Young Broker of the year Award at the UK Broker Awards in 2015. Ryan has accomplished a lot since working for Hayes Parsons and is now also a Chartered Insurance Broker.

Hayes Parsons is one of the South West’s largest independent insurance brokers and pride themselves on the training and development of their employees.

At the BIBA conference, Ryan received a special acknowledgement from BIBA Chair, Lord Hunt of Wirral who said: “Ryan is a worthy winner and we all congratulate him on his award.  He is clearly set to have a stellar career in broking, and I know we shall all enjoy watching his progression within the industry in the years ahead.”
