Norwich based Alan Boswell expands its risk management business


The team at Norwich-based Alan Boswell Risk Management (ABRM) has expanded less than a year after the company launched, due to unprecedented demand for its services.

The expansion allows the company, which already provides risk management and engineering inspection services, to provide a greater range of risk advice to an even larger client base.

Its two new members of staff, Rebecca Dingle and Jason Patchett, allow ABRM to provide environmental and marine services alongside existing services that include health and safety advice, fire, security and motor risk management.

The company, which is part of East Anglian insurance broking and financial planning firm Alan Boswell Group, launched in March 2017 with two risk advisers, two engineering surveyors and an administrator. They were joined by Risk Adviser Rebecca and Engineering Surveyor Jason in June and November respectively.

As an engineering surveyor Jason brings a wealth of marine engineering experience to ABRM, having spent 20 years in the Royal Navy, followed by a career in the oil and gas industry.

Risk Adviser Rebecca is a chartered member of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) and has significant experience providing health and safety support. She also has a history in environmental risk management, so can also help businesses to achieve ISO 14001:2015 accreditation.

Says Jason: “I’m looking forward to getting my teeth into the work. I enjoy meeting new clients and helping them overcome their challenges.”

Rebecca agrees: “The most rewarding part of the role is working with people and helping them make improvements to their businesses. The team is also very new and expanding, so it’s an exciting time to be with the company.”

Alan Boswell Group Managing Director Chris Gibbs adds: “ABRM has been in demand since it launched earlier in the year. We’re thrilled to see that our clients are so receptive to risk management and ensuring that their businesses are safe places to work. Not only does it reduce the chance of an incident occurring, but it also reduces the chance of making an insurance claim.

“In growing the company, we have added new skill sets to the team and are able to provide our services to an even greater number of businesses. We’re looking forward to seeing ABRM go from strength-to-strength in the months and years ahead.”
