I’m a Senior Business Development Manager.
My role involves speaking to potential broker partners about how we can help them increase their income, gain more attention from some major Insurers and obtain great insights into their book of business. I also help our existing Broker partners get the most out of Broker Insights.
I like being able to offer a solution like Broker Insights to my Broker peers (having been a Broker for nearly 10 years), as I know it helps with problems I myself used to encounter all the time.
It’s also enjoyable to build great relationships with brokers and help them achieve their placement goals. But I would say my favourite part of the job is offering something that has so many benefits and brings great value to Brokers.
I enjoy being part of something that is genuinely unique and new, and something that is also constantly evolving and expanding.
I have been in the Insurance industry since I was 19 years old, first in an Insurer for a few years, then, up until 12 months ago, as a Broker for both very small, and the very largest Brokers. This experience in the business-placing, client-facing side of Broking puts me in a good position to understand the real challenges and problems faced by most Independent Brokers.

Around the NFL (podcast)
I’m a big believer in the principle that, almost always, you get out what you put in. Or as Thomas Jefferson said “The harder I work, the luckier I get.”
I love the NFL and have become a big fan over the past few years – I also play Football for my local team. I enjoy history, food, travel, most sports, and spending time with my family
