Towergate has appointed Stephen Hough as business director of Towergate Health +.
In 2008 Hough was part of the management team which sold the T F Bell Group to Towergate, having spent twenty years of his career there, most recently as chief executive.
Hough returned to Towergate at the beginning of March 2016, having retired from the industry in 2012, to take over the day-to-day operations of Towergate Health+, a provider of risked based healthcare solutions. He will report into London regional managing director, Russell Collier.
Hough said: “I am so pleased to be back at Towergate and working within the healthcare industry again. It’s an exciting time for the group and since returning, I can already feel a real change in momentum throughout the business.
“Although I have enjoyed a short time in retirement I couldn’t resist the offer to step back into this well regarded business, which has retained a quality client base and a real foothold in the SME market. We are now actively bringing additional talent to the team and we are seeing genuine enthusiasm from people wanting to be part of the Towergate story.”
Joe Thelwell, chief executive officer, advisory, added: “We are delighted to see Stephen back at Towergate and believe that he is the right person to look after and grow our Health+ business given his extensive knowledge, impressive network and unwavering loyalty.”
