There is a new partner in the specialty division of brokerage giant Gallagher.
Tom Ellis (pictured) has made the switch to the firm from Tysers, and will now cover both hostile environment coverage and sports accident and health programmes, including majoring in motorsports.
“I am delighted to be joining Gallagher as the business has a global footprint, and goes from strength to strength in the sports sector,” he said. “I look forward to working with colleagues to continue to shape and grow our capabilities, and become the risk and insurance partner of choice for more organisations and athletes.”
Ellis joined Tysers after the acquisition of Ellis Clowes in 2015, where he was a founding director. He has spent his career in the Lloyd’s market and is known for developing and arranging cover for motorsports drivers and riders. Indeed, he has been instrumental in arranging cover across F1, Nascar, Indy car and more.
Now, he will report into Susan Wright, managing partner of insurance solutions, who noted his “excellent reputation among clients.”
“Tom’s appointment reflects our ongoing commitment to investing in industry-leading talent, enabling us to pursue our ambitions for further growth,” she said.
