HI Commercial has announced the appointment of Mike Ratcliffe as commercial account handler.
He joins from Marsh Commercial, formally known as Jelf Insurance Brokers, where he held the position of senior account handler.
He has also held senior positions at Aviva, MccLarron Insurance Consultants, Heath Lambert and The Insurance Partnership. His career began with Norwich Union claims investigations in the early 80s and transferred into broking in 2003.
He said: “I’m delighted to be working with HI Commercial which really takes a refreshing approach to an industry which can have a reputation for being a bit dull.”
Luke Byron, commercial director said: “We are just coming up to our first year in business, having separated from Hedon Insurance to focus on advising commercial organisations.
“Our business has grown quite rapidly in this first year and we relocated our office premises to ergo at Bridgehead in January, giving us room to take on more staff. We are now pleased that Mike’s appointment brings even more experience to our team.”
