“Our formula of harnessing great technology -- coupled with a highly experienced team -- has driven significant growth in our business over the past two years which means we are now in a strong position to drive exponential expansion over the next few years.
“Derrick will help to increase our flow business, including a differentiated capability around schemes and facilities, utilizing our cutting edge C-Q elements trading platform that is so well suited to efficiently handling “no or low touch” high volume business.

“I am delighted Derrick is joining C-Quence at a time when we are hugely optimistic about the future. As an agile and technology led business we are proud that we have been able to support Brokers and their customers through a very difficult year.

Now is the time to grow and strengthen our team and further diversify our skills base to take us to the next level.”
