Industry veteran Rob Cockle has struck out on his own and launched a bespoke brokerage, offering a range of services to busy SMEs. Rob worked for Govier and Ault Limited in Gloucester before spending 20 years working for larger regional and global insurance brokers.
During that time he gained a deep understanding of all aspects of the insurance industry, gaining in-depth knowledge in the technology, finance, logistics, construction, property and manufacturing sectors. Alongside that he has experience of professional indemnity, directors liability and cyber insurance as well as motor fleet and international insurance.
But most of all the 30 years in the industry have allowed him to gain an understanding of all types of commercial insurance and, vitally, what the customer wants. Rob told the local medi why he saw a need for a broker who was on the side of the small biz professional;
“I have worked in a number of roles, many with large multi-national firms, but all of them were client-facing,” he said.
“Our approach at BIP is to take a step back and understand our clients’ objectives. Insurance is just one method of risk transfer – one way of taking risk off your balance sheet.”
Rob’s aim is 100 percent retention of clients, with the accent on personal service and in-depth expertise that can save businesses time and money, whilst protecting them from a variety of risks. Find out more here.
