Towergate Insurance Brokers has welcomed two senior figures to its Hull team.
Stuart Brierley has been appointed managing director of the branch, with Anders McLocklan joining as development director, working between the city and Halifax.
Mr Brierley joins the Henry Boot Way firm with more than 20 years’ experience of the region’s insurance market, having worked as branch director for both Jelf and The Insurance Partnership in York, where he oversaw all broking activity.
Prior to this, he had a three-year stint with the police, and before that worked for Provincial Insurance.
He said: “I’ve been seeking a new challenge in my career for some time and when the opportunity at Towergate’s Hull office arose, it was a no-brainer. It’s great to be back in the local market because after all, I’m a local lad wanting to service the local community.
“The branch here in Hull can cover all classes of insurance and I’m really looking forward to working closely with the team to service local businesses and individuals with their insurance requirements and to provide the best expert technical advice.”
Mr McLocklan joins as development director where he’ll be responsible for looking after Towergate’s existing clients and concentrating on growth of new business into the region.
He joins from Jelf, where he held the role of associate director for the past five years. Before this, he also worked for The Insurance Partnership between 1998 and 2013, before the business was acquired and integrated into Jelf.
He said: “I’ve spent the past 20 years advising businesses on their risk and on appropriate insurance programmes. I’m pleased to join Towergate because the brokerage is well known for being client-centric and having the clients at the heart of everything it does.
“I’ve always had strong relationships with my clients and I’m excited to build new relationships and support new clients and prospects in the region with their insurance needs.”
