Reassured’s model and heritage in the telephony space is unmatched.
My belief is that we can go on to create a digital reputation that mirrors this and create multichannel experiences to help customers get the best deals across several important products.
I knew Reassured was the place for me when I saw how energised the organisation is about new ideas and striving to improve all that it does in the market.
It really does put its customers and their experience first, and we have so much potential to improve this with the right use of technology.
Maximising this potential is my main priority, and I’m excited to get started.
