James Hallam Limited, the broking subsidiary of Seventeen Group, has announced the appointment of Roy Standish as Director of Partnerships with effect from 22nd July 2019.
The role aims to strategically direct James Hallam’s Partnership programme for Authorised Representatives (‘AR’s’) and to develop new Partnership opportunities for the future.
Seventeen Group CEO Paul Anscombe commented, “we see a growing demand for entrepreneurial insurance professionals to create new ventures and to take control of their futures. With the UK broking market undergoing an unprecedented level of consolidation, there is a significant opportunity to build capital value in insurance with the support of James Hallam, which is a long-established UK broker committed to independence. Roy is uniquely placed to develop Partnerships given his extensive knowledge of the UK broker market”.
Roy Standish has spent his entire 30 year plus career with Eagle Star/Zurich, having latterly been Sales & Distribution Director. Speaking about his appointment Roy added:
“After a long and happy career at Zurich I was determined to plot a new course in insurance which both used my skills and offered the prospect of enjoyment in supporting a wide variety of business opportunities within the insurance sector. I have known Seventeen Group for many years and so it is a very natural fit for me. I know that a number of high calibre insurance individuals and firms are seeking greater support to achieve their objectives and we will be well placed to assist them.”
