Petplan renews commitment to the growing animal health market
Petplan, the UK’s largest pet insurance provider, is offering more to Breeders in 2007.
Petplan, the leading animal health insurance provider in the UK, is pleased to announce the appointment of a new Communications Manager for the UK.
Sophie Parker, previously Corporate Communications Manager at AIG Europe (UK) Limited, joins immediately reporting to Simon Wheeler, Head of Marketing.
Sophie comments: "It is the ideal time to join Petplan and become involved in the animal health industry. In 2005 the pet insurance market grew over 17% and Petplan continues to be the dominant player in the UK market.
With increased awareness of pet insurance and veterinary fees increasing to match the treatments available to animals, insurance is becoming a fundamental part of any responsible owner’s decision about caring for their pet.
It promises to be an exciting time in this developing market and I look forward to working with all Petplan’s contacts in the animal health market."
