  • About Geo

    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 Underwriting appoints Martin Joyce to lead regional specialty business

Towergate Underwriting has today announced the appointment of Martin Joyce to lead a newly formed Regional Specialty Business, as Towergate continues to focus on future growth initiatives and revenue opportunities.

With a primary focus on Financial Lines, including Professional Indemnity, Directors and Officers and Crime, Martin will build a proposition which allows Towergate Underwriting to reach more people through more products.

Martin will be based in Manchester and will report into David Bruce, CEO Commercial Lines.

Commenting on this hire today, Towergate CEO Underwriting Adrian Brown said:

“We’re cracking on, seizing upon the numerous opportunities we have to review and refresh our broker proposition as we regain our confidence in the market. The appointment of Martin and the creation of a specialty lines capability addresses a genuine gap in our portfolio and is part of a much broader strategic plan to build our strength and depth as an underwriting agency.

Martin is well known to many of us in the group, as both a respected trading partner and competitor. Over time, we’ll be looking to build a team underneath him across other specialist lines, by recruiting more key talent, forming a “go to “team in this space.”

Martin has been in the Regional commercial Insurance Market for over 25 years. Following a stint a regional broker in the late 90’s Martin spent 3 years at AIG, underwriting Liability in the UK and Internationally and then 4 years in commercial development and broker management at Allianz before joining DUAL Corporate Risks Ltd in March 2007, where he built a hugely successful regional financial lines business and developed the broker distribution model.
