Fannon joins gadget insurance company as sales director


John Fannon joins gadget insurance company and looks to build high street partnerships

Former T-Mobile and EE national sales manager John Fannon has been appointed as sales director of consumer gadgets insurance firm, Supercover Insurance.

Fannon spent 14 years at T-Mobile and EE, before a two and a half year stint at dealer OneCom, where he held the role of sales director and business development director.

Since leaving OneCom in December 2013, he has spent a number of months acting as a consultant for a number of companies including Supercover Insurance.

The new appointment represents a change of direction in Fannon’s career which has primarily focussed on the telecoms side of the mobile industry. He believes there is great potential in the insurance sector, particularly in developing white label partnerships with high street brands.

“Great tranches of technology owners and consumers simply don’t think about the value of the kit they’re carrying around,” he said in a statement.

Supercover Insurance, which owns the brand, will be hoping to tap into Fannon’s extensive industry experience and contacts book.

“John knows the telecoms and technology market inside-out, and so brings the potential to ignite even bigger and wider opportunities with both current and prospective business partners – as well as help develop Supercover’s own brands.” Supercover Insurance chief executive Carmi Korine added.
