Arthur J. Gallagher has appointed Kenny Hogg to regional managing director (RMD) for Scotland succeeding Paul Kerry who has been promoted to Scotland chairman.
Jon Simpkin, area managing director for North and Scotland, UK retail, said; “Attracting the industry’s best talent is central to our strategy as we continue to build out our Gallagher proposition and brand right across the UK.
“Kenny’s energy and skill for leading high performing teams is well-known in the industry and his market knowledge mirrors the broad profile of our client base in Scotland, making him an excellent choice to lead this part of our growing retail broking business.”
Hogg will begin his new role with effect from August 29, joining from Bluefin where he was managing director of broking and previously head of Bluefin Group corporate.
Commenting on his appointment, Hogg said; “Gallagher has achieved genuine transformation in the past few years and I have been hugely impressed by the way in which the organisation has essentially set a new standard of professionalism for how to operate and do business in this sector.
“I’m really looking forward to joining Gallagher and working alongside the team to continue to build the business in Scotland and champion the ‘client-first’ approach to broking for which Gallagher is well-respected.”
He brings 22 years insurance industry experience, including having executive positions at Towergate, Standard Life, Zurich and Scottish Widows under his belt.
