Eames appoints associate director for insurance
Eames has appointed Toby Smith as associate director within its insurance team in London.
In his new position, Smith will focus exclusively on permanent hires within the insurance change management space, as well as covering signature technology appointments. He has over a decade of recruitment expertise, successfully completing a full spectrum of change and technology placements, predominantly at the mid-to-senior level.
Since he began his career in 2005, he has specialised in placing candidates into the financial services sector, including insurance, developing key client relationships with some of the most recognised names within the market.
Prior to his move to Eames, Smith was most recently responsible for establishing a new change management practice at Thomson Keene Associates, managing and building a team of specialist recruiters to serve both new and existing markets.
Smith commented, “Eames’ reputation across the insurance sector is outstanding and a big factor in why I decided to join the business.
"Given the ongoing backdrop of Brexit and the continued M&A activity across the sector, Change Management will be a very topical subject for our clients over the next few years; I look forward to partnering with them as they look to tackle these unique challenges.”
Founder, Matthew Eames, remarked, "We are constantly on the lookout for high calibre talent to join us on our growth journey, and Toby is a perfect example.
“His wealth of knowledge and experience will enable us to further expand our proposition for the ever-evolving insurance change management and technology markets, leveraging mutual relationships across the team to solidify our position with the space.”
