Sharon celebrates 20 years with RentCover – and an industry accolade

Sharon Fox-Slater this month celebrates 20 years with RentCover –
and earns a prestigious industry accolade.

The RentCover General Manager was included in Insurance Business magazine’s Elite Brokers 2013 list.

The honour recognised her expertise in landlord insurance and role as a pioneer in a male-dominated industry.

Sharon was the first woman to complete the Advanced Diploma of Financial Services with National Insurance Brokers Association (NIBA) and as a was the group’s first female fellow as a result of this achievement.

RentCover’s growth to be a leader in its marketplace reflected the outstanding service and skills of the entire team, Sharon said.

“Almost 40 per cent of our team have been with RentCover for five years or more. We know landlord insurance inside out,” she said.

“The industry award is great but, for me, the most important marker of success is client feedback. If someone’s prepared to pick up a pen and give you a compliment, you know you’ve really gone beyond the call of duty – and I get that kind of feedback on a daily basis,” she said.

More than 113,000 landlords have the peace of mind that comes with RentCover landlord insurance, and 95 per cent of new business comes from word of mouth. Most claims are paid within 24 hours.

“After 20 years, I still come into work every morning with a smile on my face. That’s because I believe in our product. Landlord policies are not all alike, and there are some average ones in the market,” she said.

“I want landlords to have the protection RentCover offers on what, for many, is the biggest investment they own, something they’re relying on for their future.”
