As part of her corporate strategy to motivate outstanding staff and increase performance in terms of policy uptake, sales persistency and new businesses, FBNInsurance Limited, an FBNHoldings Company associated with the Sanlam Group SA, recently rewarded winners of her annual MD/CEO Ember Championship Award.
At the 2018 award presentation which held recently in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Odinakachi Umekwe, Head, Retail Distribution, in his statement, reiterated that the MD/CEO Ember Championship was designed to push new premiums and increase persistency between September and December every year. “We know how hard it is to get people to buy insurance, especially as the year ends. To encourage sales and get new businesses, this competition was set up to reward the Sales Area that meets certain sales criteria during this period,” he said.
For ease of administration of the award, the country was divided into Areas. Port Harcourt Area won the best performing Area while Benin and Enugu came second and third respectively for the period under review.
While presenting the winning Area with a cash reward for its effort and exceptional performance, the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, FBNInsurance Ltd., Valentine Ojumah, commended the area and charged them to do more for a greater reward and to retain the trophy next year. He also promised to continue to adequately support them to ensure they meet their sales target just as he enjoined other areas to step up their performance in order to join the league of the winners.
FBNInsurance operates a robust retail structure of over 2,000 retail agents operating out of 42 sales outlets nationwide.
