Specialty re/insurance broker Consilium has appointed Jodie Gibbons (pictured above) as its new business development manager for the Southwest.

In her new role within the Risk Solutions team, Gibbons will be responsible for enhancing regional broker access to Lloyd’s and London market capacity across a range of specialist risks.

Gibbons joins Consilium from Q Underwriting, where she was key account manager. She brings over 22 years of experience in business development roles at Victor Insurance UK, DUAL Corporate Risks Ltd, and Rural Insurance.

Her network of retail brokers spans Wales and the Southwest of England, an area noted as often overlooked by the Lloyd’s and London market but rich with growth opportunities.

Consilium’s Risk Solutions portfolio includes property, casualty, cyber, professional indemnity, construction, asbestos, waste and recycling, and motor.

Matt Pini, managing partner of Risk Solutions at Consilium, stated that the company welcomes Gibbons to the team and looks forward to building relationships in the region and assisting brokers in placing their risks with A-rated capacity.

“She is a true talent, with vast experience and strong relationship management skills that perfectly complement our team of experts. Brokers in Wales and the Southwest will quickly realise this is not business as usual – this is Consilium, and with us they’ll achieve better outcomes for their clients,” Pini said.

“I simply cannot wait to get started and deliver something new and exciting to my network. Consilium’s culture was a big attraction for me, as well as how active its Risk Solutions team is in delivering a differentiated proposition to the region, one based on great client service and a desire to do things better; something underserved brokers in Wales and the Southwest will appreciate,” Gibbons said.

Since 2019, Consilium has reported a compound growth rate of 39% and it has increased its headcount by 123% over the past 18 months, with further recruitment planned for next year. The speciality broker anticipates significant growth in 2024 and aims to reach $1.4 billion in gross written premium by 2026.
