R&Q announces opening of Birmingham office

27 November, 2013

R&Q MGA Ltd (‘R&Q MGA’), the specialist MGA platform of Randall & Quilter, is pleased to announce the opening of its second regional office in the UK, in Birmingham. This expansion follows R&Q MGA’s opening of a Manchester Office last year and demonstrates its commitment to the regional broker market.

The new Birmingham office will initially form part of the R&Q Commercial Risk Services (‘R&Q CRS’) team, under the leadership of James Wheddon. The new office provides a platform from which the entire suite of R&Q MGA products can be offered to the local broker community. R&Q CRS underwrites UK property and liability coverage across the commercial sector, specialising in commercial combined property owners, contracting and package business.

The new office is based in the Snow Hill area of Birmingham and will initially be staffed by local underwriting specialists, Paul Woodcock and Phil Woodward.

James Wheddon, Director, R&Q CRS, added, “Our strategy is to support the local broker community by giving them access to experienced underwriters and decision makers. A presence in Birmingham will play a crucial role in this. I am delighted to welcome Paul and Phil to the business; they are highly experienced underwriters with excellent relationships across the midlands region.”

The launch of the Birmingham office is part of R&Q’s commitment to expand its global MGA platform. R&Q MGA has successfully built distinct specialist platforms across a variety of niche lines, ranging from high net worth to marine.

Nicholas Hales, Chief Executive Officer of R&Q MGA, commented, “The opening of a new office in Birmingham is another exciting strategic development for the business, not only is it a demonstration of the Group’s commitment to develop a leading MGA platform, but also establishes a well located regional hub for R&Q group.

We are always on the lookout for quality teams, both in the UK and overseas, and are pleased to welcome Paul and Phil. They both join us with a wealth of experience developed across various positions that they have held within the regional broker and composite insurer community. We look forward to developing this office in conjunction with them.”
