JM Glendinning Professional Risks Announces MD Appointment

Yorkshire headquartered JM Glendinning Professional Risks has promoted client director Gareth Milner to become its new managing director.

Gareth Milner, who joined the professional risks insurance broker business in January 2020, succeeds founding MD Jake Fox who stepped up to become group managing director at JM Glendinning Group Limited.

Gareth has played a significant role in the business’s growth and success during his two and a half years in the business. Gareth gained 16 years’ experience advising on Professional Indemnity and related insurance covers for professional services businesses, including prior roles at national and global insurance brokers AON, JLT Marsh and PIB before he joined JM Glendinning Professional Risks.

Since 2015, the Professional Risks business has grown from a standing start to placing £15m of premium into the insurance market, now employing ten people in Yorkshire and the Midlands. It has become one of the most successful businesses in the JMG Group, helping law firms and professional practices manage risk whilst bringing them the widest and most competitive insurance options. Under his leadership and with support from investment from Synova, Gareth plans to double the size of the business over the next five years and expand geographically beyond Yorkshire and the Midlands.
