Tasker Insurance Group are delighted to announce the appointment of Robin Thomson as Managing Director of Tasker Insurance Brokers, the Group’s retail broking business, succeeding Ann Bowyer who remains on the Group Executive with more focused responsibilities for Markets, Placement and Learning & Development. Robin’s focus will be on organic growth as well as accelerated growth through selective acquisitions and the establishment of a broader regional broking business and management team.
Robin joins with over 30 years’ industry experience having held a number of leadership roles within the UK insurance market including Layton Blackham, Bluefin Insurance and, most recently, Clear Insurance. He has extensive experience in leading a multi-site retail broking business, driving organic growth and executing and integrating acquisitions.
Robin is the latest addition to the executive team at Tasker Insurance. Following Robert Organ’s appointment as CEO in September 2017, Graeme Lalley as COO in September 2018 and Jonathan Webber as CFO in January this year. Joining Ann Bowyer, Barry Reynolds, MD of the Lloyd’s broker Tasker & Partners and Robert Munden, CUO of the MGA Gresham Underwriting, these appointments add further strength to the existing executive team.
CEO Robert Organ said:
“I am delighted to welcome Robin to the business, he is well connected right across the broking sector and, having worked with him for some time, I know he is well respected and trusted by others in the industry. This makes him ideally placed to support us in our ambition to continue to grow through recruiting great people and acquiring successful businesses.”
Commenting on his appointment, Robin Thomson said:
“I am joining the Tasker Insurance Group at a really exciting time. I can see that the business provides the perfect platform for growth and knowing Rob [Organ] for a number of years, having worked together at Bluefin, I am delighted to have the opportunity to be part of the team and contribute to the ambitious plans.”
