Penny towers


After a long working relationship with our Executive Chairman, we’re delighted to finally welcome Penny Towers to the Unisure family. Penny, who joins the team as a Business Development Underwriter, boasts more than 30 years’ worth of experience in the insurance industry.

Penny forged her career at Friends Provident International as a Business Development Manager for East and Southern Africa. During her 19-year tenure at the company, she led the African strategy and developed new business from a wide range of different distribution points. In 2011 she joined Utmost Worldwide (formerly Generali Worldwide) and spent the last 10 years developing business in the group risk sector in Africa, the Channel Islands, Gibraltar, and Malta.

“I’ve known Penny professionally for over 20 years and I have no doubt that her experience and extensive knowledge and understanding of the offshore marketplace will be a tremendous asset for our company. We’re incredibly proud to have her join our team,” says Stephen Conway, Group Deputy Executive Chairman of The Unisure Group.

Penny’s role with The Unisure Group will be focused on developing new business globally and building the company’s brand awareness. She’s passionate about employee wellbeing and is looking forward to sharing the benefits of The Unisure Group’s suite of international health and life insurance solutions with her networks.

“The Unisure Group is the whole package,” Penny explains. “What makes us so unique is our offering of group and individual life insurance solutions, plus international health insurance, and a sector-specific Mining and Energy Forum health insurance plan.”

“Unisure is flexible and agile, and in the international space, especially, flexibility is important. Taking something off the shelf doesn’t always do it, so our entrepreneurial approach and ability to offer niche underwriting solutions really sets us apart.”

Your experience in the industry and your passion for employee benefits make you a great asset for our team, Penny. Thank you for joining the Unisure family, we look forward to many happy years working with you.
