New RSA UK CEO celebrates insurance broker leaders


RSA is delighted to announce the graduation of the RSA Broker Leader Programme Class of 2019.  Graduates were congratulated at a ceremony led by RSA UK CEO Scott Egan.

Future industry leaders selected to take part in the prestigious RSA Broker Leader Programme have undertaken an intense training programme covering skills such as business planning, strategy development, leader communications and change management. In addition to face-to-face training, leaders were assigned a mentor from RSA’s leadership team who coached them throughout the programme and will continue to support their careers going forward.

To apply their learning directly to their work, each candidate focused on a live project from their brokerage throughout the course. For the final stage of the programme they presented their plans to RSA executives and a sponsor from their own firm. 

The intensive six-month programme, now in its fourth year, is CPD accredited by the Chartered Insurance Institute. It has enabled future leaders from RSA’s key broking partners to gain skills tailored specifically for the general insurance market.

This year’s graduates:

  • Nick Ellis - Alan & Thomas Insurance
  • Laura Davies - Aston Lark
  • Allan Wheeldon - Towergate
  • Philippa Leake - Towergate
  • Paul Worton – Jelf
  • Marsha Matthew - SEIB
  • Paul Huntley - Erskine Murray
  • Amy King - Basil Fry
  • Joe Perry - Sutton Wilson
  • Emma Tildesley - Howden

Scott Egan, UK CEO RSA, said “The strength of RSA’s commercial business lies in the strength of our broker relationships, who are critical partners in bringing our expertise to market and helping us gain the trust of our customers. We are committed to maintaining and growing long term partnerships with brokers by supporting the development of their talented future leaders.

I’m delighted to have been able to meet the brilliant participants of this year’s Programme – who I have no doubt will go on to do great things in the industry!”

Lee Mooney, UK Regions Director for RSA’s Commercial Risks Solutions said:

“Enhancing our broker relationships is a core part of our plan as we continue to evolve our business and become more relevant and visible with brokers across all of our regions.”

“It’s brilliant to be able to celebrate in the success of these driven and talented people who have thrived in what is often a challenging programme.  Attracting diverse, talented people into insurance and being able to offer them ongoing professional development is vital for the future of our industry. We’re committed to supporting our partners and not least our people to develop the skills and expertise they need to succeed and drive our industry forward for the benefit of our customers.”
