Robbie Spear
Head Of Business Development

What are your roles and responsibilities within Novo?

My role is Head of Business Development, which means that I identify, develop and secure opportunities that assist in the growth of the business. I’m also responsible for the relationships that we have with most of our business partners and ensuring that these remain positive for all parties. Additionally, I look after the placement programme for the group insurances, and those of our larger corporate/commercial clients

 

What is your favourite part of the job?

Two answers to this really. Firstly, the passion which we, as a group, have for doing things differently and seeing how impressed other people are by our story, what we do and how we do it. Secondly, and a bit of a cliché, but it’s the fact that no two days are ever the same at Novo and the fact that more often than not, we meet and deal with the ‘curve-ball’ challenges that often come our way

 

What is the best piece of professional advice you have ever received?

Be memorable

 

Who would you like to play you in a movie of your life?

I’m not sure that a Hollywood A-lister would want to play a lad from South Liverpool, but if he’d agree to it, I’d choose Edward Norton

 

What is the best song ever?

How Many More Times by Led Zeppelin

 

What is your favourite car?

Ferrari 250 GTO
