Phil Counsell

Business Development Manager

Joined In 2010
Phil’s role within SJL Insurance Services for over 10 years has been Head of Business Development which means much of his time is spent on the road meeting with FCA authorised and regulated brokers. The role enables him to support and educate those intermediaries that use SJL as both an underwriting agency and wholesale broker ensuring that they are aware of the processes and schemes at all times. In addition, he will always be happy to speak to new brokers keen on an agency with SJL and commonly speaks to individuals following marketing campaigns which he also helps to develop. He will assist the broker in identifying gaps in their offerings which SJL can fill as well as opportunities to grow their existing book and maximise their income.
Phil is a big football fan and has had a season ticket at Wolves for 30 years, in which time he has had about 4 decent Saturdays! He has 4 children ranging from 5 to 21 with his eldest two both at University. He either runs or cycles most days (all in the comfort of his garage!) and still has a vast CD collection of over 2,000 despite listening to all music now on Spotify.
