Ian Pelham is a Senior Vice President at InSolutions Ltd, created in Norwich in the 1980's by Marsh Risk Consulting as the world's first dedicated broker insurance archaeology unit. Until 2003 Ian's role at InSolutions Ltd was as a junior team manager. In that year he completed the two-year Executive Masters of Business Administration at the business school at the University of East Anglia, and his career changed course forever; Ian rose steadily through the ranks to become practice leader of InSolutions and a Senior Vice President.
Ian puts the origin of his career transformation down to his MBA at Norwich Business School -
‘Prior to attending the UEA I had very much been coasting and lacked the confidence to present at board room level. As a result of developing my research and presentational skills at the UEA, I was able to use these to progress my career. I now deal internationally with clients at the highest level.'
‘As a result of completing my MBA, Marsh recognised the value of my Norwich Business School training and advanced me to head of practice at InSolutions Ltd.'
Under Ian's leadership InSolutions Ltd has picked up a number of awards and award nominations, including Claims Initiative of the Year, 2009 in the UK broker awards and Claims Initiative of the Year, 2011 awarded by the Chartered Insurance Institute Manchester.
Ian himself is no stranger to personal accolades having been given the Business Link Norfolk Prize in June 2004; awarded to the best student graduating from the University of East Anglia MBA course in that year.
