Insurance broker announces management restructure

Jacob Duckworth and Steve Boorman

Loughborough-based insurance broker, Anthony James, has restructured its senior management team.

The move sees current managing director Steve Boorman become CEO, with sales director Jacob Duckworth moving into the managing director role.

The news follows the acquisition of Nottingham counterpart Bale Insurance Brokers back in the Spring

Boorman said: “We have ambitious plans for sustainable growth in terms of the team, our business and our associated businesses. A big part of that wider picture is working with, developing and promoting incredible talent and Jacob is a perfect illustration of that.

“In a market known for consolidation, we are fiercely independent. Maintaining that independence requires the creation and development of a thriving culture within the organisation. Jacob, Leonie Rainbow (operations director) and Liudmila Matvievskaia (finance director) are leading that charge and I’m proud to have worked with them as they have built their careers in the industry together here at Anthony James.”

Duckworth added: “I am immensely proud to be moving into a role that Steve has created, thrived in and developed over these past years. We are ‘reliably different’ as a company and certainly as an insurance brokerage and that is down to the values that Steve has helped to instil right across the team and into our entire philosophy as a company.

“Fortunately for me, I will be working very closely with Steve, Leonie and Liudmila to continue in this spirit of innovation, customer-centric thinking and frankly, just doing things differently, to develop our client offering and experience further still.”
