From an early age, Thomas Hopwood was acquainted with insurance, as it was often a topic of dinner table discussion at home. Today he finds that the industry has a nobler purpose than most people realise.
“Our industry provides the security and basis on which economies are able to innovate, create and develop, and [it] does not receive the credit that it deserves,” he says.
Specialising in professional indemnity insurance for the construction sector, Hopwood advises SMEs on contractual and risk management, and multinational consultants on professional risks in the UK and abroad. He takes pride in his team having successfully renewed all of the company’s largest clients, resulting in turnovers of between £1m and £535m.
Hopwood serves as treasurer for the Insurance Institute of Liverpool, helping arrange CPD and career advice events, and was runner-up for the institute’s Insurance Young Achiever of the Year award in 2013.
He also serves as vice chairman for the Association for Consultancy and Engineering Progress Network (North West). Hopwood stays active by playing various sports and participating in triathlons, as well as achieving his lifelong dream of running the London Marathon in 2013.
