JM Glendinning Insurance Brokers, part of JMG Group, has elevated Gareth Milner (pictured) to serve as managing director of the company’s professional risks business.

Succeeding founding MD Jake Fox, Milner is moving on from his position as client director. His predecessor became group managing director of JM Glendinning late last year.    

“I’m inheriting a fantastic business at an exciting time for both our team and the wider JMG Group,” said Milner, who has been with the professional risks unit since January 2020. “It’s a privilege to take on the responsibility and ensure we continue to provide best-in-class service to all of our clients and expand our footprint.

“JMG is a great place to work, and I plan to maintain that culture as the professional risks business evolves. Clients join and stay with us because of our people, so I want to keep attracting the best talent in our industry and give great colleagues the autonomy, career progression, and opportunities they deserve.”    

The professional risks business places £15 million in premiums and is manned by 10 people in Yorkshire and the Midlands. With Milner at the helm, the plan is to expand the business geographically and double its size over the next five years.

“Gareth has the vision, hunger, and passion to drive this business forward, which shone through in the rigorous recruitment process of internal and external candidates,” commented Fox. “Both myself and the JMG Group board have huge confidence that Gareth will lead the business to future success.

“Gareth’s promotion is great news for us and for clients and demonstrates that opportunities are there for our employees should they wish to pursue them. I wish him every success in his new role.”

Milner’s credentials span time spent at Aon, Jardine Lloyd Thompson, Marsh, and PIB Group.
