Price Forbes strengthens its technical capabilities in the Western Cape

Price Forbes Insurance Brokers has strengthened its technical capabilities in the Western Cape by appointing Lee-Anne Lekay as technical broker. Lekay will be based in Stellenbosch.

 

Lekays’ key objectives will be to strengthen the Price Forbes presence in the Western Cape and Boland area where she is available locally to support the team in both a servicing and account executive role. Her responsibilities will also include servicing of Johannesburg-based commercial clientele.

 

Commenting on her move to the Western Cape, Lekay says, “My decision to move was also spurred on by the need for growth outside of my comfort zone which is commercial, but will entail niche markets such as Winery and Vineyards Insurance. The culture we are striving for is to know our clients better and understand their needs, and in doing so being able to provide them with tailor made bespoke insurance solutions. I am glad to be a part of the team and look forward to the challenging task that lies ahead”.

 

Lekay brings with her a wealth of experience having been in the short term insurance industry for the past 15 years. Previously Lee-Anne worked at Investec private bank, providing insurance services for its high net worth client base. Thereafter she joined Aon Risk Services as a broker consultant servicing its largest commercial insurance portfolio.

 

Lekay has recently completed her HCIBS Diploma through UNISA.

 

Warren Bolttler, CEO of Price Forbes, says, “We believe that the insurance market in the Western Cape is highly lucrative and further investment of resources will give us more leverage in the region. The Western Cape is also a strong economic hub for retail, financial services, and the food sector in which we would like to make bigger inroads.”

 

“We have heightened skills and innovative products in the Agri Sector, as well as food and wine products with key clients like Ceres, Cape Span and Tokara and will be looking to expand further in these specific sectors,” he concludes.
