Ropner Insurance lures Endeavour team

Marine broker Ropner Insurance Services has strengthened its team with three executives from Endeavour Insurance Brokers.

Steve Jones, who served as marine divisional director at Endeavour, joins Ropner as division director. He is joined by colleagues Neil Stevens and Graham Smith.

Ropner is backed by Global Risk Partners, an investment vehicle aimed at brokers and managing general agents (MGAs) trading in the UK retail and global, specialty insurance markets. It is led by David Margrett, previously president of Willis Global and chairman and chief executive officer of Willis.

Jones said: "I am looking forward to this new challenge. We joined Ropner because of its excellent market reputation and strong GRP backing which will enable us to offer new and existing clients a wider and better service."

Richard Steel, chief executive of Ropner, said: “I am delighted that Steve and his team are joining Ropner. With GRP’s backing, we are driving significant growth through the acquisition of specialty broking teams, portfolios and individuals and we have an excellent pipeline of opportunities.”
