After three years with Pound Gates Rob Thacker has been appointed as a Director.
Starting in his role as Sales Manager in 2009 he has been instrumental in many business growth and client improvement initiatives, taking on responsibilities beyond his initial remit. His success has made his career development within Pound Gates a natural progression.
Rob, a Chartered Insurance Broker himself, started his insurance broking and risk management career in 1988, coincidentally the same year Pound Gates was founded. He has helped a wide range of clients during his career by improving their management of risk, thinking strategically about how they insure and often saving them money. He has held a variety leadership roles prior to arriving at Pound Gates, having completed an MBA in 2004.
Kevin Collins, Managing Director, said: “Rob has brought a huge amount of energy to Pound Gates and this has delivered results for our business. Making Rob a director allows him to develop further and provide him with the platform to promote and grow our business. Now we are a Chartered Insurance Broker we need people at Rob’s level to continue to maintain the high standards and our quality agenda.”
