Ballantyne Brokers Ltd, an independent London broker, has continued its expansion by adding to its senior leadership team through a new double hire.
The broker has now appointed Ian Martin as divisional director, Property and Derrick Lloyd as head of Claims Broking, with both appointments effective immediately.
It said the “exceptional” pair will further drive Ballantyne’s “impressive growth plans and be fundamental in strengthening its business strategy”.
Prior to his appointment, Martin was la director at Alternative Distribution Operations at Willis Re, having previously held a senior role at Aon’s MGA and Programme Solutions team.
Meanwhile, Lloyd brings with him an “impressive” record with over 30 years in insurance claims, latterly as claims director of Decus Insurance Brokers.
Ross Ballantyne, Ballantyne Brokers said: “These appointments ensure that our senior team has the full range of experience and knowledge that we need to guarantee the ongoing, successful growth of Ballantyne Brokers.
“Both Ian and Derrick bring with them outstanding insurance expertise and networks within their specialist areas, and I look forward to welcoming them both to the team.”
