Jamie brings with him almost 30 years of insurance industry experience, working as both a broker and insurer where he has held senior roles within companies including Allianz, AXA and most recently as Head of Commercial Branches at LV.

As Managing Director, Jamie is responsible for the day-to-day running of City Underwriters.
