A bit about the team

The wider Broking, Claims & Underwriting team has 10 consultants, all ranging in seniority and background, with each individual focusing on their chosen markets. The team has an autonomous style of working, allowing consultants to pursue their interests and specialisms.

In 2017 we launched our European desk which has successfully grown our footprint into continental Europe. The European team currently consists of 2 Consultants covering Iberia, France and Benelux.

The Broking, Claims & Underwriting division is led by a hands-on and well-respected partner who has experience in hiring consultants from varying backgrounds and developing them into market specialists. The team can offer the following:

  • 65+ years' combined experience to leverage off
