Our family insurance brokerage grew from 2 to 300 staff by 2003 under my leadership at which point I reversed the business into the Oval Group where I became CEO. I now sit on the UKGlobal Holdings Ltd board. Away from insurance I played both cricket and rugby at senior level. In more recent times, I have held many sporting administrative roles, including being President of the MCC in 2011/12.
Our Key People
Group Executive Chairman
I joined UKGlobal Group in July 2016 to help create a national presence for the company by developing an insurance broking business that embraces progressive risk solutions whilst providing contemporary and competitive client service. I believe that personal responsibility, primacy of the clients’ interests, integrity, governance and the selection and development of staff underpins the venture. Together with Matt Bray, I am responsible for the culture and performance of the group.
