  • 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.

Towergate adds third market to its London specialty business


Towergate Underwriting has launched another London markets team within its Geo Specialty business.

International contractors, plant, and machinery has now gone live, led by Chris Thomas. It follows political violence, led by Marcus Meredith, which launched in August when Geo Speciality was set up, and liability, led by John Murphy and Glenn Marshall.

Chris has joined Towergate from Contego Underwriting, bringing with him a wealth of experience across international liability and construction.

Geo Specialty Managing Director Nick Grazier said Chris’s appointment was an exciting next step for the business.

“We’re delighted to have Chris on board – his 11 years underwriting in company market, syndicate and latterly MGA have given him a great understanding of the challenges across the underwriting spectrum.

“We’re looking forward to expanding contractors, plant and machinery into North America, Europe, and Asia Pac, and to exploiting the synergies between Chris’s team and Marcus’s.

“These two markets are a great start for Geo Specialty, and we’ll be adding more in the coming months as we build the business.”

Chris added: “I’m delighted to be part of this new venture with all the opportunities it brings for development and growth.

“This is just the beginning of building a broader construction team and proposition.”
