Gallagher has welcomed James Henley and Anharul Ali as enterprise account managers to its Coventry team to further increase the firm’s presence in the Midlands.
Henley joined from insurance broker A-Plan Insurance in Shirley, whilst Ali joined from Simple and Smart Insurance in Small Heath.
The new employees will specialise in providing insurance solutions to start-up businesses in the life sciences and technology sectors as well as servicing small business clients in Coventry and Warwickshire.
Both account managers will be partnering with growing companies in the life sciences and technology industries, as well as local small business clients, to help them identify their “current risks and anticipate risks” they may face in the future.
Gallagher has a sizable presence in the West Midlands, with offices in Coventry, Birmingham and Brierley Hill, employing over 400 members of staff.
Debbie Moss, Coventry head of office, Gallagher, said: “As an insurance broking partner to companies of all sizes, including businesses in the early stages of development, we recognise that stepping out on your own can be a daunting but exciting prospect.
“As businesses grow, so do their risks, and we work with clients to ensure they stay on a firm footing throughout their growth journey – keeping abreast of the shifting sands of emerging risk, regulation, legislation and compliance.”
She added: “We’re delighted to be welcoming James and Anharul to our first-rate team. Bringing our two new colleagues on board, who each offer a great deal of local market expertise, reflects our ongoing commitment to investing in talent to support our expanding client base in the West Midlands and beyond.”
