Specialist re/insurance broker Miller has announced the re-alignment of its business into two divisions, Miller UK and Miller International.
The firm states that Miller International, which launched at the beginning of 2023, will oversee all activity across Miller’s global offices, supporting its ambitions for continued expansion.
Meanwhile, Miller UK, which came into effect in July 2022, will focus on the business’ London Market offering and continued growth in the country.
In line with these changes, Miller has announced that Mike Papworth will take on the role of Managing Director of Miller International, while Tim Norman becomes Managing Director of Miller UK.
In addition, Robert Doust becomes COO of Miller International and Ron Whyte becomes Head of Asia.
James Hands, the firm’s CEO, commented, “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.”
Hands continued, “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.”
