CN&CO is delighted to welcome three new partners into the family. We say family because we mean family. One of our founding principles is that we only work with people and organisations that share our values and see value in the way we work. The Financial Intermediaries’ Association (FIA), Bidvest Insurance and Consort Technical Underwriters are three such organisations. All three of these companies are also members of the insurance industry, where we have a wealth of experience and networks.

Here’s a bit more about each of these new partnerships:

Financial Intermediaries’ AssociationWe’re delighted to welcome the Financial Intermediaries Association (FIA) as a partner to our CN&CO world. The FIA upholds and delivers a commitment to improving and promoting the image and standing of insurance intermediaries.

CN&CO is working with the FIA to help develop and drive its marketing and communication pillars across all channels. We previously had the pleasure of working with the FIA earlier this year when we helped put together the 2017 FIA Broker Awards cocktail evening.

We’re particularly excited as it’s not only the FIA business we are familiar with but also its people. Lizelle van der Merwe (CEO, FIA) is a good friend of everyone here at CN&CO. Not only is she one of South Africa’s remarkable CEOs, she’s also a passionate mother and wife – and for us family is everything.

CN&CO’s Gianluca Tucci says, “Our adventure with the FIA has kicked off and we’re delighted to be working with the team. There are some exciting projects on the horizon and we can’t wait to help grow, communicate and share the developments of the FIA – particularly with the broker market. 2018 will be particularly exciting as it’s a new year and with it many new happenings, discussions and events.”

We look forward to starting this journey together with the FIA. For more information check out the FIA Twitter channel.

Bidvest Insurance

We officially signed on Bidvest Insurance as a client in October. CN&CO is helping Bidvest to drive its PR and marketing strategy from its base in Durban.

The Bidvest Airbnb and Insurance – It’s not what you think article, published across industry media in October, was our first piece of work delivered for Bidvest. It enjoyed considerable interaction on social media.

Consort Technical Underwriters

CN&CO officially kicked off a partnership with Consort in October. We are partnering with the Consort team to drive marketing strategy, communications, internal communications, social media and PR.

We kick started our relationship with the Movember drive. Consort challenged staff and business partners to get involved and grow a mo, with all proceedings go to cancer research.

We have also had two articles published across insurance and construction media.

Consort MD Chris Charlton MD talks “venturing into Africa” with FA News (see image below), while CFO Graham Charlton penned an article entitled “The current South African engineering insurance sector – survival or demise”, which was published in Cover Magazine, FAnews and Construction Weekly.
