GRP has announced the appointment of Clive Nathan as the new CEO of the Group’s MGA division. He will join the business in April 2018.
Clive will succeed Stephen Ross, who has overseen the rapid growth of the MGA business to its current £100m+ GWP. Stephen, COO of GRP, will concentrate on the Group’s M&A activity as GRP expands its UK footprint in both broking and underwriting.
Peter Cullum, chairman of GRP, said: “Clive brings a wealth of experience to the rapidly growing MGA division following his executive roles at both Towergate and Primary Group.”
He added: “Clive is joining the Group at a time when we are looking to expand significantly our MGA business with further acquisitions, hard on the heels of the investment in Camberford Law.”
Clive Nathan said: “I am delighted to be joining the group as it continues its exciting trajectory in the UK insurance market. Its MGA division comprises a number of highly regarded specialty businesses and I look forward to working with them and the executive team at GRP.”
