Speaker biography: Nicholas Hartley

Nicholas Hartley was appointed Head of Business Improvement and Innovation at Ecclesiastical Insurance in July 2017. Since joining Nic has focused on building a new innovation framework, managing the Loss Prevention Innovation programme and developing e-trading initiatives. Prior to joining Ecclesiastical, Nic was Senior Innovation Manager at Covea Insurance, a role he developed after the purchase of Sterling Insurance Group in 2014 where he had previously been Commercial Open Market Underwriting Manager. Nic was the principal architect of Sterling’s ‘e-trade...your way ' initiative that launched in 2015. This not only transformed Sterling's own distribution channels, it also changed the way that the industry met the challenge of service commitment in the e-trade arena. Sterling’s e-trade proposition was shortlisted for Insurer Innovation of the Year in the 2015 Insurance Times Awards and also received Covea’s Financial Impact of the Year Award. Nic’s extensive work in training both underwriters and intermediaries was also recognised when the Sterling Academy won Training Programme of the Year at the 2013 awards.

Nic has over 20 years’ experience in the insurance industry and prior to joining Sterling, Nic held senior underwriting positions at AIG and Allianz.
