One of the UK’s leading independent insurance brokers has welcomed six new starters to their Welsh team after supporting and navigating more clients through the challenges of 2020.
Thanks to their agility throughout the coronavirus pandemic, Towergate Insurance Brokers has expanded their Welsh team to enable them to support more clients than before with advice-led and quality service, building on their success in 2021.
Martin Jones, Simon Peasley, Dean Barker and Brendan Hopkins have joined as Development Executives, along with Account Executive’s Jamie Chambers and James Davies; together they offer Towergate nearly 100 years of combined insurance experience.
Development executive Brendan Hopkins previously worked for Towergate Insurance Brokers for 12 years before taking a break from the insurance industry to complete a degree in the Business of Sport and work within Sports Development in Wales.
Brendan said: “Having worked for Towergate previously, I had a good understanding of the business and always enjoyed working here – it was an easy decision to come back. Now, my intention is to bring both of my passions together to support the sporting industry with their insurance needs.”
New Account Executive Jamie Chambers boasts a wealth of industry experience and specialises in providing insurance for several sectors, including property, construction, professional services, creative and media.
Discussing his new role, Jamie said: “I’m thrilled to have joined Towergate in Cardiff. I’m glad to have the opportunity to work for an insurance broker that is so embedded in their local communities, and with a culture and ethos I believe in. It’s been great so far and I’m really looking forward to seeing what the future brings.”
James Davies previously worked as a Development Director, specialising in the SME and mid-market sector.
James said: “Towergate is a well-known and respected brand within the insurance and business communities, both locally and nationally.
“I previously worked for a large multi-national company and I felt that it was becoming harder to maintain a personal touch so, I was keen to get back to community broking. Towergate’s consultative approach means that there is a huge emphasis on providing the best outcome for the client, which is exactly what I want to be focused on.”
Speaking of the new recruits, Gary Stevens, Area Managing Director Wales, said: “We’re very pleased to welcome these new members to the business, especially in such trying times. Supporting so many clients in 2020 and being there for them when they need us the most, has meant we can expand our workforce to meet the needs of more clients this year and continue our growth.”
