TL Dallas bolsters City team with double appointment


Following several significant new client wins, independent insurance broking and risk management specialist, TL Dallas, has bolstered its London team with the appointment of two corporate account executives.

Michael Jobson and Ross Bullard are seasoned insurance professionals with 36 years combined industry experience and both are certified with the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII).

Michael said: “After working across loss recovery, personal lines, commercial account handling and working with high net-worth clients for almost 18 years, I then became a specialist in the health and care sector, which faces unique challenges and has very individual requirements when it comes to insurance.

“Throughout my 24-year career I always preferred working for independent insurance brokers, and that was one of the main reasons for my move to TL Dallas. I had heard great things about the family and employee-owned firm, and as TL Dallas had recently set up a dedicated health and care division, it made it the ideal move.

“With complete freedom of thought and action, which is not always the case at some of the corporates, I can focus on delivering the very best service for clients. To be working with a dedicated team of professionals who all have the same goal of providing the best cover for the best possible price, and always responding swiftly and effectively to claims via the in-house team at TL Dallas, made the role hugely appealing.”

Ross said: “I started out in the insurance industry 12 years ago in motor insurance, working for a broker in Southampton, before moving to another broker to specialise in insurance for parish and town councils. I spent eight years as an account executive in the local government sector at this firm, which was sold twice during that period.

“Joining a stable firm like TL Dallas is a fantastic opportunity for me, and I plan to build on my network of contacts in my home county of Norfolk and beyond to introduce the array of services that TL Dallas has to offer. Being a broker is a varied and interesting job and I particularly like working with different insurers on complex cases. Every client is unique and supporting them with their insurance and risk management needs is extremely satisfying.”

Polly Staveley, managing director at TL Dallas, said: “This double appointment reflects the significant growth the team is delivering in our city office. As we continue to build on our client base in the South of England, we also plan to recruit at least two more team members with the right ethos and experience over the next year or two to support our growth plans.”

The TL Dallas London office is located the heart of the city at 14 Devonshire Square. With a 15-strong team in the city supplying commercial insurance products to businesses operating in every industry sector, TL Dallas also offers a variety of specialist polices, including books, collectables and demolition insurance, as well as having access to the wider group for private clients, trade credit insurance and independent financial services.
