What you need to know about Chris Benson
Chris Benson, chess player, part-time cyclist and stoic West Ham supporter has been living insurance for over twenty years.
His work with major international broking companies has given him extensive experience in all aspects of customer service... quotations, placements, audits, advice, risk management and claims.
Chris is ridiculously well educated, he has a degree in law, and also in commerce, from Otago University. To top it off he has worked in public practice as both a lawyer, and an accountant. With all of this behind him, he is well able to understand the challenges of running your own business.
If that wasn’t enough, he has some pretty impressive qualifications in the Insurance industry. He is an Associate of the Insurance Institute of New Zealand (A.I.I.N.Z) as well as being a Qualified Insurance Broker (Q.I.B) and a Fellow of the Insurance Brokers Association of New Zealand (F.I.B.A.N.Z)
In spite of all of this, Chris is an approachable, down-to-earth type who makes sure that he personally knows all of his clients. He visits them regularly, knows what they do, and keeps in touch.
