Petplan Announces PIA Award Finalists
Petplan, the UK’s largest pet insurance provider, has announced the finalists for the ‘Petplan Insurance Advisor Award’, in association with JCA Publications. This award recognises the hard work and dedication that Petplan Insurance Advisors do to highlight the importance of insurance to pet owners.
Three veterinary professionals have been short-listed as finalists:
Wendy Wears, Moor Cottage Veterinary Hospital in Berkshire
This is the second year in a row that Wendy has been named as a finalist for the award which can be attributed to her commitment to the Petplan Insurance Advisor programme. She was the first person in her practice to complete the programme and constantly organises for other staff to join. Her colleagues have nicknamed Wendy ‘The Insurance Guru’ as she is always on hand for any client questions.
Kelli Vogt, Polsloe Veterinary Clinic in Devon
Kelli is always available to assist both staff and clients, and patiently explains the different types of insurance policies available. Her colleagues have commented that Kelli is extremely dedicated to her role and they couldn’t find a better advocate for the Petplan Insurance Adviser programme or better person to provide advice to customers.
Vickie Sadler, Orwell Veterinary Group in Ipswich, Suffolk
Vickie is a great ambassador of the Petplan Insurance Advisor programme and always encourages other staff members to be a part of it as well. She keeps everyone in her clinic up-to-date with any policy changes and has even prepared a presentation for clients to attend which provides best care tips and information about pet insurance.
The finalists were judged by President of BVNA Donna Lewis, Petplan Business Developers Lisa Allen and Spencer Jones, and Head of Business Development at Petplan Howard Brown.
Howard says, “At Petplan we work closely with vet practices to educate them about pet insurance so that they are able to give their customers informed and up-to-date advice. It is great to see the dedication and competence that each finalist has applied to providing their customers with this service.”
The winner will be announced at the annual BVNA Congress on Saturday 9 October.
