Founder and Director of Hooray Health & Protection, Charlie Cousins has enjoyed a career in the insurance and financial services industry spanning over the last ten years.
Starting his career in retail banking working at call centres and branches, Charlie experienced first hand the general public’s frustration when sourcing individual protection, this is something that has stuck with him to this day.
Charlie spent the five years prior to Hooray working at MetLife managing relationships with their key employee benefit consultancies, planning deal winning strategies to ensure the lion share of their business.
Outside of work you’ll find Charlie jogging around the streets of Brighton training for his second marathon or at the Joker pub tucking into their amazing chicken wings.
