James Hallam reveals new director of partnerships

If you want to steer people in the right direction, then you need to have the right leader in place – and that is what James Hallam Limited believes it has found in Roy Standish.

The broking subsidiary of Seventeen Group has today named Standish as its new director of partnerships – a role he will officially take beginning July 22. His aim in the position, according to group CEO Paul Anscombe, will be to develop new partnership opportunities for the future and also strategically direct its partnership programme for Authorised Representatives.

“We see a growing demand for entrepreneurial insurance professionals to create new ventures and to take control of their futures,” the CEO said. “With the UK broking market undergoing an unprecedented level of consolidation, there is a significant opportunity to build capital value in insurance with the support of James Hallam, which is a long-established UK broker committed to independence. Roy is uniquely placed to develop partnerships given his extensive knowledge of the UK broker market.”

Standish is a well-established industry name having spent his entire 30-plus year career at Eagle Star/Zurich. Now, however, he is keen for a new challenge.

“After a long and happy career at Zurich I was determined to plot a new course in insurance which both used my skills and offered the prospect of enjoyment in supporting a wide variety of business opportunities within the insurance sector,” he said. “I have known Seventeen Group for many years and so it is a very natural fit for me. I know that a number of high calibre insurance individuals and firms are seeking greater support to achieve their objectives and we will be well placed to assist them.”
