The Clear Group hires new group CEO

The appointment will allow the co-founders to focus on other roles

The Clear Group, an independent chartered insurance broker, has appointed Mike Edgeley as its new group CEO, subject to FCA approval.

Edgerley has held positions at BGL and Lancaster Insurance, but his most recent responsibilities were handled as managing director at A-Plan Insurance.

The appointment will allow Howard Lickens and Gary O’Donnell, the co-founders of the firm, to take up roles as executive chairman and mergers and acquisitions director respectively.

Lickens acknowledged that the company is “fortunate” to have captured a CEO with Edgerley’s “experience and capability to take the business forward”.

He added: “His appointment as group CEO also reflects the pace at which we are realising our growth ambitions. 

“Clear has grown significantly in recent years, and the management team we have built, led by Mike, is in great shape to deliver on our next phase of development.”

Commenting on his new role, Edgerly said: “I’m delighted to be joining a talented team and dynamic business, which has such an exciting future. 

“We have a unique proposition for brokers at a crossroads who are seeking the advantages of the collegiate brokerbility model or a good home for their business as they realise their investment.”
