Insurance broker Gallagher has appointed James Murray as head of office at its “centre of excellence” for corporate clients in Leeds.
In his new role, Murray will lead a team of risk and insurance experts based in East Parade, to provide tailored risk management and mitigation solutions to major clients, including large private and public companies and complex multinationals.
A chartered insurance broker, Murray was previously client management director at Aon in Leeds, where he specialised in the design and delivery of tailored risk management and insurance programmes for sophisticated existing and new clients.
Murray is a “great hire for Gallagher,” said Jon Simpkin, area director for Gallagher in the North. “Clients benefit from our detailed knowledge of their business and the sectors in which they operate, receiving local service and expertise backed by global resources. James’s experience and passion make him ideally placed to lead our expanding team in Leeds as they continue to help businesses understand and manage the risks they face more effectively.”
