Chief Operating Officer, Simply Business
Chris Slater helped turn Simply Business from a tiny start-up company into one of the UK’s largest online commercial insurance providers in less than ten years. He has been a driving force behind the company becoming a leading insurance broker for small and medium sized UK businesses.
Simply Business is the UK’s favourite (small) business insurance broker, protecting hundreds of thousands of businesses and landlords.
Headline sponsor of the Startups Awards for the third year running, Simply Business last year awarded craft beer discovery club Beer52 with the Simply Business Startups Business of the year title, saying they were “bowled over by the talent, prospective success and raw energy of the businesses that make the shortlist”.
“From the next-generation marketing platforms to innovative swimming class franchises and flexible working solutions, the products and services entered each year give us enormous pride in our sponsorship, and enthusiasm for the years to come.”
