GRP hub broker Green Insurance has recruited Rob Ashburn as Managing Director. Green Insurance is based in Bexhill Sussex, with a team of 80 staff located in branches around the South East of England. Rob has over 20 years of broking and senior management experience, most recently as Trading Director of Towergate’s SME Division.
Green Insurance has seen significant growth in recent years, both through writing new business and the completion of a number of acquisitions. Rob will join the senior management team, reporting to CEO Duncan Coleman and Chairman Clive Galbraith, to help continue and accelerate this growth trajectory and to oversee the integration of future planned acquisitions.
Rob said: “Greens is a quality broker with a great reputation in the market for looking after their clients. They have some exciting plans in place and this was too good an opportunity for me to pass up”
Duncan Coleman commented:
“Rob will bring drive and valuable experience to our senior management team. Our pipeline of acquisitions for 2019 is looking very healthy, and Rob’s appointment will give us the capacity we need to ensure we bring these on board and integrate them effectively whilst keeping our eye on the ball with organic growth.”
Mike Bruce, GRP Group Managing Director agreed:
“Rob has great operational and commercial experience having successfully run and grown a broking operation with over 200 staff. He will be a great asset to the business helping Duncan and Clive to take Green Insurance on to the next step of its development”
