Miller eyes major UK & international expansion with move to split business

Specialist re/insurance broker  Miller has restructured its business with a host of leadership changes to build out its presence in both the UK and internationally.

The business has been split into two divisions, Miller UK and Miller International. Miller UK came into effect last July and Miller International launched at the beginning of 2023.

Miller International will oversee all activity across Miller’s international offices, supporting its ambitious plans for expansion in Europe and Asia. While Miller UK will focus on the business’ London Market offering and continued expansion in the UK.

In line with the changes, four senior leaders have taken on new roles in the business. Mike Papworth has been appointed managing director of Miller International, Tim Norman as managing director of Miller UK, Robert Doust becomes COO of Miller International and Ron Whyte becomes head of Asia.

James Hands (pictured), CEO of Miller, said: “Our ambition is for Miller to be the scale international partner of choice across both our direct and wholesale offerings. Our leading London market capabilities will always be core, but we also aim to invest significantly in our international capabilities as we look to continually meet, and anticipate, the needs of our global client base.”

He added: “This is an exciting time for Miller as we look to expand across the UK, Europe and Asia; we have already seen strong international growth both through organic activity and strategic M&A, such as the acquisition of Henner Sports in France (now Miller Sports & Entertainment, Paris) and Japanese Broker Lead Insurance Services. This new structure will further empower us to deliver on our international strategy. At the same time, and most importantly, we will always retain our ‘One Miller’ approach, acting as a single global team of empowered experts to deliver for our clients, wherever they are.”
