Our business development team goes from strength to strength


Shepherds Friendly would like to announce and congratulate Laura Hassall in her new role as Business Development Consultant, as part of the expanding intermediary team.

Laura, who joined the Society in January 2018 and quickly proved her worth in a sales support role, successfully progressed to a position as business development associate and has now been appointed to a full role within the team. She will be looking to not only manage relationships with current key accounts, but to also contact and introduce new intermediaries to our growing network.

Laura commented:

I have really enjoyed my time with the Society to date as everyone has been so supportive. I am very grateful for the training I’ve been given and for the opportunities offered to me to make such a rapid progression in my career. I’m now looking forward to getting out and about to meet with intermediaries and help Shepherds Friendly continue with its impressive growth record.”

Antony Uttley, our Head of Distribution, added:

“Laura has been a valuable asset to the Shepherds Friendly business development team. The appointment to her new role corresponds with her efforts with our intermediaries.  Laura is smart, determined and devoted to ensuring all intermediaries gain the best from working with a mutual”.

The Shepherds Friendly Society is a thoroughly modern mutual which has been helping families with their finances since 1826. Built on an ethos of putting our members at the heart of all we do, this philosophy has been extended to the intermediary market with a firm commitment to helping build businesses today and into the future.

Our dedicated Business Development team has worked closely with intermediaries for many years and believe we have developed a good understanding of how we can best support and provide all our intermediaries with a bespoke service, designed to give a distinct and clear advantage when it comes to helping grow a financial business.

Our Mutual Advantage programme means we treat intermediaries as more than just another number; we take time to understand your organisation’s needs and objectives so we can support you with the tailored services that will help you most. Support that allows you to concentrate on providing your clients with the highest levels of service each and every day. It’s an advantage that means that we can both face the future with confidence.
