Bspoke Commercial Ltd, the specialist MGA, has appointed Nick Grazier in the role of Managing Director, reporting to Group CEO, Tim Smyth. The role incorporates the leadership of the Bspoke Commercial, Bspoke Private Clients and Bspoke Sports & Leisure businesses.
Following the acquisition of Bspoke Commercial Ltd, as part of the Precision Partnership and UK General ownership transaction in September 2022, Grazier replaces Gill Anderson who has moved into a Group role as Trading Director. The company has recently rebranded to the Bspoke Group of insurance businesses.
Tim Smyth, Bspoke Group CEO said: “It is great news for Bspoke Commercial Ltd that we have been able to appoint such a well-regarded and highly experienced individual. Nick’s background and expertise means he is perfectly placed to play a pivotal role in our assertive drive for profitable and sustainable commercial growth across our business.”
He added: “We are confident Nick will be a tremendous asset to the business as we continue to execute our strategic plan. The board wishes him every success.”
Nick Grazier said: “This is an exciting time to be joining the Bspoke Group. There has been a lot of investment in the business over the past 18-month period, and the focus now is growth, developing and honing the existing product and service offering and to establish Bspoke Commercial Ltd as a recognised leader in specialist and innovative underwriting.”
He continued: “I intend to achieve this through a mix of organic and inorganic growth, including the development of new specialist underwriting units that will complement our existing business.”
Nick added: “I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to play my part in leading Bspoke Commercial Ltd through the next phase of its development.”
