Steve Chan, Branch Manager

My story

I started with A-Plan having no insurance experience. I received support to gain my CII certification within my first year. From there, I had aimed to become head of renewals in my branch which I achieved within my second year. I have now been appointed as Branch Manager of our new Northampton branch. I have always worked hard and been focused on progression and, in turn, A-Plan has assisted me to reach my goals.
