  • About Geo

    The Geo journey has begun.

    An exciting future lies ahead as our Towergate businesses move over to Geo. From 1 February 2018, our personal lines business joins Geo Specialty in operating under the Geo brand. The move marks the next step in a programme of change as we transform into an agile MGA structured for long term success in an evolving insurance market.

    Our commercial businesses will soon also move over to Geo, completing the operational phase of the transition. But that’s by no means the end of it. We’re on a journey to make a difference. To carriers. To brokers. To the industry as a whole. Geo is the start of that journey.

    We look forward to sharing it with you.

CEO of Towergate David Ross commented today:

“Paul is a seriously impressive hire and a huge indication to the market of our intention to take our MGA into a new phase.

Adrian has done a great job holding down two of the biggest roles in the group. He has spent the last few months reviewing the MGA, ensuring we are set up for the long-term future, ready to grow not only in the regions but in the London market too. He now returns to fully focussing on revenue initiatives to support our focus on growing the business.”

Paul Dilley added:

“There is a genuine buzz in the market around Towergate, being as it is on the cusp of building upon on a hugely complex transformation plan.

Adrian hands over a much admired and market leading MGA, which is poised, ready for growth. I very much look forward to getting on board and taking it forward, whilst getting the opportunity to work alongside him and the entire team.”
