It is with great pride that we can announce the promotion of Liam Murphy, following his successful completion of our Business Development Graduate Training Programme.
Liam will continue working alongside Sales Director Mike Day and fellow alumni on the graduate scheme, Hannah Goodall, in the role of Business Development Manager as part of Kingsway Finance’s Sales Team.
Following graduation from Sheffield Hallam University with a BA (Hons) degree in Business Studies, Liam took some time to fulfil a lifelong dream of travelling across California for four months before focussing on the career path he wanted to take.
“When making the decision about ‘what next’ I knew exactly what I wanted” Liam explained, “a graduate role where there was a place for me to become an integral part of the team, with people who would take the time to train me properly.
“As soon as I sat down with Commercial Director Paul Bradbury and Mike Day, I knew not only that the role was perfect for my career progression, but Kingsway as a business and as a group of people to work with was an ideal fit. Throughout the Graduate Training Programme, the whole team at Kingsway and the Praetura Group have all been very supportive and fantastic to work with”.
Sales Director, Mike Day, commented: “Liam is the latest success from our Graduate Training Programme, following in the footsteps of fellow BDM Hannah Goodall. Liam has already proved himself to be a valuable asset to our team and I have every anticipation that the benefits that he will bring not just to our team, but to the brokers we work in partnership with will only strengthen and grow over the coming weeks and years”.
“This has been a record-breaking year at Kingsway. Liam, along with the rest of the team, has been integral in the growing success of our company. I look forward to watching and assisting with Liam’s future progression with Kingsway and the wider Praetura Group”.
Liam added: “The Graduate Training Programme at Praetura is something I would highly recommend. The training process was thorough, giving you the knowledge of the different departments and their place in the business and wider industry, before undertaking specific sales responsibilities.
“There is also a clear progression path. Being part of such a large expansive and evolving group of companies at Praetura offers a variety of different opportunities across a range of financial sectors”.
