Global Risk Partners (GRP) has appointed Stuart Grieb as regional managing director (RMD) for the South, taking over the role from Chris Haggart, who is taking on wider responsibilities with the group’s retail division.
Grieb joins GRP after a career in broking with Marsh, Towergate, Brightside and Willis.
Haggart, who joined GRP in November 2018 as commercial director, will assume wider GRP Retail responsibilities, including ownership of GRP’s digital proposition, performance optimisation and a number of specific organic growth initiatives.
GRP also revealed that Grieb’s responsibilities as RMD South will include working with GRP’s hubs, Greens (SouthEast), Alan and Thomas (South), Higos (South West), as well as TIL, TIL Southend, Shearwater and HNW broker Gauntlet.
Mike Bruce, GRP CEO, said: “GRP sets as much store by organic growth as we do acquisitions. These roles will amplify our focus on driving growth and building out our integrated client proposition, which now includes healthcare following our recent acquisition of Premier Choice Healthcare in June.
“We have worked hard during the last three years to drive performance improvements across the business from both our integrated client proposition and our unique data-led platform, which both provides our insurer partners with leading edge analytics and identifies development opportunities for new products to improve client servicing.”
He added: “I am delighted to welcome Stuart to GRP. He lives and breathes broking having spent much of his career at some of the UKs leading insurance brokers, and he will give us renewed impetus within our Southern footprint. Chris is taking on an important group-wide role, and I am confident that he will bring about a further boost to our organic growth.”
Grieb said: “GRP is an exceptional business with a market-leading client proposition. Following the pandemic, clients will more than ever look to their broker for advice and support to help them through challenging economic times.”
“I am excited by this new opportunity and look forward to working with GRP’s exceptional retail businesses in the South to help build on their outstanding client reputation.”
