Expansion continues at ARAG following record results

13 August 2014

Bristol-based legal expenses insurer ARAG is continuing its expansion programme with recruitment across the board, having just announced record trading and profits and the expectation of more to come.

Of eight new starters, the latest recruits are Peter Collins and Lisa Abrahams who are now working in the South East for the BTE (before the event) and ATE (after the event) sales teams respectively. Both are well known in the field of legal of legal protection with backgrounds in insurance and the law.

Peter's career has taken him from the Magistrates Courts to legal protection and a solicitor firm, before starting with ARAG as Broker Account Manager. He will concentrate on the Home Counties (apart from the City) where he believes there are significant new business opportunities to develop and maintain profitable scheme business, whilst continuing to provide support and service to all clients.

Lisa also joined ARAG at the start of July. After 13 years in legal expenses, firstly as BTE claims handler then later as Business Manager and transferring to ATE as a senior underwriter, she has an extensive mix of legal and insurance knowledge to assist in the role. An associate member of CILEX (Chartered Institute of Legal Executives) she is developing new relationships with solicitors in the South East and maintaining existing ones.


Refurbishment and expansion of ARAG's Bristol Head Office was completed earlier in the year. An increase of over 60 % working space was acquired to accommodate the staff needed to meet projections of continuing growth in the medium to long term.
