The Geo journey has begun.
An exciting future lies ahead as our Towergate businesses move over to Geo. From 1 February 2018, our personal lines business joins Geo Specialty in operating under the Geo brand. The move marks the next step in a programme of change as we transform into an agile MGA structured for long term success in an evolving insurance market.
Our commercial businesses will soon also move over to Geo, completing the operational phase of the transition. But that’s by no means the end of it. We’re on a journey to make a difference. To carriers. To brokers. To the industry as a whole. Geo is the start of that journey.
We look forward to sharing it with you.
Towergate creates Speciality London Markets underwriting division
Towergate Underwriting has today announced the formation of a Speciality London Markets underwriting division, by hiring two market leading talents in this important and as of yet undeveloped specialist opportunity for the Group.
John Murphy and Glenn Marshall will join upon leaving DUAL, an international underwriting agency, where they have headed a speciality liability business for more than 3 years.
The division will write a General Liability Portfolio, encompassing Employers Liability, Public Liability and Products Liability and will be based out of the Mitre Street office, where an underwriting floor will be created.
Commenting on this news today, Adrian Brown, CEO Towergate Underwriting said:
“These are hugely important hires and indisputable evidence that we are attracting the very best talent in the market as we look to take a leading position in this space. John and Glenn will lead a business which perfectly complements our existing strengths in both the commercial and construction markets across our underwriting brands, bringing added value to our developing London Market capability and to our more established regional businesses.
“We’ve worked closely with our broking customers who are telling us they need improved and direct access to this speciality market and we are hugely excited to be responding to this demand. More broadly, it supports our underwriting ambitions to extend our offering to more clients and to add to our existing capability.”
