Leading legal expenses insurer, DAS, has appointed Audrey Henshaw as business development manager for the Northern region.

Audrey will be developing relationships with brokers in key defined areas, essentially Manchester and Leeds, and she will have some management responsibility for the region and its staff.

Audrey comes from an extensive legal expenses background and has experience of running her own business in the North West.  Her specialisms include the compliant handling of motor-related products and add-ons.

Audrey’s appointment coincides with the impending retirement of Geoff Ashton at the end of August, who has been with DAS for almost 30 years.

Andy Westall, group sales manager, DAS UK Group, said: “Audrey understands the legal expenses industry inside out and will be a great asset to our team.  We are delighted to have her on board.  I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Geoff for all of his hard work, commitment and invaluable contribution to the business over the years.  We wish him well in his retirement.”
