INSURANCE broker Samantha James is aiming to be leader of the pack.
Samantha, 25, an account executive at Eastwood and Partners in Huddersfield, has reached the final of the IT Pack, an initiative run by Insurance Times and Aviva to spotlight the next generation of insurance brokers across the country.
Samantha attended an IT Pack session in Leeds where she impressed with her contribution and her thoughts on the Insurance Industry.
She now has to go to London to be interviewed by a panel of judges, including Nick Hewer from TV’s The Apprentice. The winners will receive their awards at a ceremony in December in Birmingham.
John Eastwood, managing director of Eastwood and Partners, said: "The company are delighted that Sam has been selected as a finalist, it is well deserved and we wish her all the very best for the final."
Eastwood and Partners has more than 80 staff at offices in Huddersfield, Halifax and Sheffield providing insurance broking, risk management and financial services.
