On applying for the role, Rob said: “I have known about Russell Scanlan for many years as it is such an established business within the insurance industry with an impressive reputation.

“2021 was an incredibly strange year for everyone, with remote working and the absence largely of being able to meet with clients, it has been a challenge. Nonetheless, I am incredibly proud of what the entire team has achieved and look forward to expanding both our team and client portfolio throughout the upcoming year.”
