20 Sep 2017
Client: Tasker Insurance Group  - Gresham Underwriting   
Sector: Insurance Search – Underwriting 
Solution: Retained search 

Tasker Insurance Group (TIG) approached IDEX Consulting to appoint a Chief Underwriting Officer for their MGA, Gresham Underwriting. As this role was based in the offices outside of London, they were looking for an individual who was based within commuting distance. The ideal candidate for this role was expected to have a strong track record within the UK Property and Casualty business as well as good knowledge of the commercial market, technical underwriting and delegated underwriting authority. 

The Process 
Our team, headed by David Carr, went away and created a longlist of all candidates who matched the job specification within the commuting distance of the office. From the longlist we identified the most suitable candidates and then made contact with them to see if they were interested in the role. From here, IDEX were able to shortlist 3 strong candidates who were put forward for the first stage of interviews with the CEO of TIG. In total there was a three-stage interview process, the final interview being with the CEO, Non-Executive Director and the Board.

TIG selected a candidate, who was already a well-respected name within the sector and brought over 30 years of experience. Since joining Gresham in 2017, the candidate has already made a big impact in the company. 

Testimonial from the Client: 
"Following the successful integration of an acquisition we were seeking a senior market figure to lead this part of our business.  Having worked with IDEX over many years we were confident that they would have the in-depth understanding of our business to source relevant, quality candidates in a confidential manner.  The IDEX service was fast and focused enabling us to make an appointment in a timely manner."
