Gillian Henderson, Managing director, Brownhill Insurance Group
Brownhill Insurance Group
Gillian Henderson joined the insurance industry more than three decades ago, at a time that was very different from today. “Being very male-dominated, you needed to speak their language, which meant I learnt a lot about football,” she says. “Because of that, I am now an avid Crystal Palace supporter! Thankfully, women now cover a larger proportion of the industry.”
Passionate about art, Henderson is especially proud of Brownhill Insurance Group’s Love Art brand, which provides cover for art collectors and art service providers. Her experience of running a business while raising a family has given Henderson firsthand knowledge of the importance of providing flexible working conditions to promote a healthy work-life balance, which is critical to any successful business.
