Our very own Ken Dixon has been awarded an Elite Broker of 2020! Ken ranked no.10 for the Insurance Business Elite Brokers Award.
The Insurance Business Elite Brokers ranking system is an objective means of ranking the best-performing insurance brokers in the country – not just those with the biggest portfolios or the largest clients. Each broker was required to supply their own details to be eligible, along with details of a contact who could verify those figures. The criteria included:
- Number of policies written
- Total revenue
- Revenue per policy
- Number of clients
- New clients
- New client revenue
- Client retention
Each broker was ranked in each of these measurements, and the sum of their rankings was calculated to determine their final placement on the list.
Like many others in the broking space, Ken Dixon fell into insurance. Starting with FAI in 1991, he worked in claims, underwriting, sales, team leadership, sub-agency management and area manager roles before becoming a broker in 2003.
Today, many of Dixon’s clients are regarded as hard-to-place; between that and managing claims on an international basis, he has no shortage of challenges, but he remains keen to tackle them and grow his business in the process.
As a company, Dixon Insurance Services has changed its management practices and actively empowers all Tier 1 staff to expand, grow and succeed, which has helped propel the business to another level. Having expanded to the Sunshine Coast, Dixon has invested heavily in new staff, training and incentives. Looking ahead, he expects to see returns on these investments as his employees further develop their skills.
