Gallagher has added three new insurance specialists to its Manchester team, further increasing the insurance broker’s presence in the North West of England.
Gallagher’s Manchester office, based on New Bailey Street, looks after a range of clients’ risk management and insurance needs from multinational corporations through to local SMEs, with key specialisms including trade credit, employee benefits, wealth management, claims and compliance.
David Mullen joins the Manchester-based Gallagher team as client services director, bringing with him more than 10 years’ experience, most recently at Aon, where he managed its Manchester based corporate team.
James Churchill joins the team from BLP to become Gallagher’s Latent Defects lead for the North region, bringing his own 10+ years’ experience in this specialist area.
Rebecca Young has been appointed development executive and will lead the affinity partnerships team in Manchester with a focus on building and managing banking relationships.
Stephen Penketh, North West Regional Managing Director, Gallagher’s Retail Division, comments: “As the UK’s second-largest economy, Manchester is an important engine driving the country’s growth, with global brands, SMEs and start-ups thriving in the city in industries including technology, manufacturing, real estate, as well as financial and professional services.
“Our three new joiners, who all have expertise of the local market, will play a key role in supporting our growing client base in Manchester and the wider region to identify and manage the specific risks they are faced with.”
