UK broker and MGA consolidator Global Risk Partners (GRP) has named Clive Nathan as CEO of its MGA division.
Nathan will join the business and assume his new role in April, succeeding Stephen Ross who has overseen the rapid growth of the MGA business to its current £100mn+ of gross written premiums (GWP).
As COO of GRP, Ross will focus on the Group’s M&A activity as GRP expands its UK footprint in both broking and underwriting.
Nathan joins GRP from Primary Group, the holding company of UK General Insurance, where he held a variety of senior roles including non-executive chairman of Rural Insurance and executive chairman of One Commercial.
From 2006 to 2016, he served as CEO of Towergate Underwriting, having joined the business in 2003 as a regional managing director.
GRP chairman Peter Cullum remarked: “Clive brings a wealth of experience to the rapidly growing MGA division following his executive roles at both Towergate and Primary Group.”
“Clive is joining the Group at a time when we are looking to expand significantly our MGA business with further acquisitions, hard on the heels of the investment in Camberford Law.”
Commenting on his appointment, Nathan said: “I am delighted to be joining the group as it continues its exciting trajectory in the UK insurance market. Its MGA division comprises a number of highly regarded specialty businesses and I look forward to working with them and the executive team at GRP.”
