COVER editor Adam Saville has done the hat trick for the Protection Review Awards, netting three shortlist nods: personality of the year, protection journalist of the year and, for the COVER brand, organisation of the year. This is the first time Saville and COVER have been been shortlisted for these award categories.
The Protection Review awards is a key event in the health and protection insurance sector, and are part of the protectionreview.co.uk brand. COVER is widely respected as the market-leading brand in the UK life insurance sector.
The awards, which are in their 15th year and are independently judged, recognise those people and organisations in the health and protection sector who demonstrate client focus, strong customer engagement, ease of claim payments and product innovation. They take place on July 11 at London’s Landmark Hotel.
“I am delighted to be personally shortlisted for these awards and for COVER to appear alongside leading brands in the sector in the organisation of the year category,” said Saville. “COVER has enjoyed a very successful 12 months. Our flagship event COVER Protection & Health Summit was our biggest yet and we launched our first ever Mental Health Forum in March which was also a huge success, so to be recognised like this by Protection Review and the wider life insurance sector validates our approach and all the hard work that goes into it. It is a very exciting time for life, protection and health insurance across the board and COVER is pleased to be a part of it.”
COVER has enjoyed previous success at the awards: Saville’s predecessor Fiona Murphy won the outstanding contribution to protection journalism gong at the 2018 awards.
