Trio of new hires join Gallagher’s insurance broking office in Manchester

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. Responsible for a team of account executives, David will oversee client services and develop corporate relationships in the region.

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. In his new role, James will support construction clients with their risk management and insurance requirements, with a focus on house warranty and commercial latent defect insurance.

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. With over 10 years’ experience, Rebecca joins from Zurich, where she managed a portfolio of brokers working in the construction sector.
Gallagher has a significant presence in the North West, with offices in Manchester, Sale, Liverpool, Chester and Lytham St Annes, all forming part of the broker’s 70-strong UK branch network.

Stephen Penketh, North West Regional Managing Director, Gallagher’s Retail Division, said: “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.”
James Fletcher, Manchester Branch Director, Gallagher’s Retail Division, said: “With businesses facing uncertain times, we’re pleased to be bolstering our Manchester operation – adding to a first-rate team of specialists who are on hand to help our clients navigate the changing risk landscape.

“Though our new team members have joined us in very unusual circumstances, we are set up to deliver a full service to our clients remotely, and so they have still been able to hit the ground running to ensure our clients in the region are prepared for any challenges their businesses might face.”
