National broker joins forces with Winn Solicitors to provide front line claims management service

Collingwood Business Solutions has joined forces with Winn Solicitors to provide a first class front line claims management service to its customers.

The specialist service provider to the insurance sector has appointed the firm to be the first point of contact for customers logging new claims. Winn Solicitors, which is headquartered in Newcastle, will work closely and in tandem with Collingwood’s technical claims management team based in North Shields. The new partnership is likely to see the creation of many new jobs.

Collingwood’s CEO Steve Welton said: “It’s an exciting time for the company as we continue to grow and we are thrilled to have appointed Winns as our first notification of loss team to further strengthen our plans for expansion.

“Winns has a sound track record in providing an efficient, first class accident management service to its customers, with excellent customer service and efficient operations and procedures in mind at all times. The firm’s core values and beliefs are parallel to that of Collingwood’s, and I’m confident for a positive future from the partnership.”

Sales director at Winn Solicitors, Chris Birkett, said: “This is a significant account for Winns and is testament to the service we have provided to the insurance sector and their clients following a road traffic accident. To be recognised by Collingwood and chosen to operate their first notification of loss is no small feat and a huge achievement.”

Collingwood Business Solutions, together with its regulated subsidiary Collingwood Insurance Services, currently employs 180 staff and has several new products being launched in 2017.
