He will be a great asset to our clients – whether on the carrier, broker or MGA side – and I am delighted that a person of Paul’s calibre is joining DA Strategy at such an exciting time.”

I look forward to enhancing the many benefits they bring to their clients.
What especially excites me about my new role is the opportunity to use my unique blend of skills, including a combination of Delegated Underwriting experience and strategic Data knowledge, which is complemented by the experience I have gained through advising and personally investing in start-ups over the last 10 years that has consequently given me the insights into the do’s and don’ts of setting up a new business.”
