Alex works in our Account Management team, dealing with customers on a daily basis. Here is a bit more about what his role involves.

What is your role and what does it involve?Alex Lyma-Young

As an account manager we are responsible for managing all existing client relationships and ensuring our customers are maximising their use of the platform. We are the main revenue generating team for the firm and need to identify/drive revenue opportunities as well as cross sell additional products to our existing client base.

What are some of the challenges you are facing in your role?

One of the key challenges is managing expectations for a demanding portfolio of clients. We work very closely alongside our risk team who underwrite the limits we offer.  Client discussions can often be quite sensitive and challenging, so it is always important to manage expectations and work in partnership with risk to deliver the best solution possible for clients.

What do you hope your future at MI looks like?
