Broadway Insurance Brokers may still be a relatively new entrant to the UK insurance broking market, but it is continuing to strengthen its operations, an emphasis cemented by its latest senior appointment – Martin Lilley (pictured), who has joined the team as director of corporate services,
During his 25-year career, Lilley has advised some of Britain’s biggest brands in retail, sport and logistics. He is a fellow of the Chartered Insurance Institute (FCII) and has spent the last decade working in senior positions with Marsh and Aon. Broadway’s chief executive Daniel Lloyd-John noted that Lilley’s recruitment is in keeping with the firm’s commitment to only hiring insurance professionals capable of enhancing the service provided to its roster of business and private clients.
“Martin is genuinely acknowledged as one of the most experienced and capable individuals when it comes to advising both major corporate brands and emerging enterprises on their insurance needs,” he said. “To be able to attract someone of his calibre is not just tremendously exciting news for Broadway and its clients but testament to the progress which we’ve been able to make in such a relatively short space of time.”
Lilley adds further credibility to Broadway’s corporate offering, Lloyd-John said, which has already seen it become the advisor of choice for several prominent North-West companies. He noted that the senior team assembled at Broadway has made great strides since its inception and that the firm will be announcing further hires in the coming months to evolve the level of support it can offer clients.
“It is that emphasis on providing a very tailored service of the highest possible quality which has quickly enabled us to appeal to a broad range of private and corporate clients across the North West,” he continued.
Last month, Broadway revealed it has arranged cover for more than half a billion pounds worth of assets on behalf of corporate and private clients across the North West during its first year. Lloyd-John highlighted that the broker’s existing corporate clients feature businesses involved in a wide variety of sectors, including logistics, engineering, manufacturing, construction and property – with a “significant” number turning over in excess of £250 million.
