The Network's Three Pillars
"DESIGNED FOR MEMBERS BY MEMBERS"
The Network's Three Pillars
Since our humble yet ambitious beginnings, the Broker Network family tree has flourished. We are committed to working closely with our Members to ensure that our products and services are aligned with their business needs.
Today our primary focus is centered around Members, Products and Partners, which enables the Network to offer the best of the best in each of these key areas.
Our mission is to help Grow, Protect and Support independent, community-based brokers. We’re devoted to our Members and truly believe in providing that personal touch, getting to grips with the nuts and bolts of your business so that we can understand exactly what makes it tick.
Because we’ve been there, we understand what being a broker is all about – so we can find the right membership level to match your company’s particular needs.
Broker Network Partners offers a unique investment opportunity from a centre of excellence. Our strategy is to create a series of regional broking centres across the UK, several of which will, in turn acquire their own ‘satellite’ brokerages. In turn, you can benefit from the Network’s expertise, solid reputation and sound industry knowledge.
We understand that for brokers, gaining access to competitive cover can make or break your business.
A strong products proposition offering an extensive choice of Member-exclusive, non-transferable deals has been a top priority of the Network ever since our renowned Countrywide proposition was launched back in 1994; since then our Broker Network Products pillar has been further developed to fortify our position as a world class product provider.
Without Broker Network taking both the time and considerable trouble to make us step back, take a dispassionate look at our business and take the decisions necessary, then our growth plan would not have been possible.
"Supported by a team of over 150"
Ian Clark Executive Chairman
WORK: I smell the flowers every morning. Great place to work, great culture and it’s all about doing the right thing for our Members. Strategically we know what we want so its all about the delivery and that’s my job. I chair the best team in the industry and its a joy to engage with them and help get the best out of them.
LOVES: The buzz of a good job, travel (still after all these years), sport of any description, the wife, the kids and the dogs.
Andy Fairchild Chief Executive Officer
WORK: Well it seemed like a pretty good idea 30 years ago – I was part of the original Misys Insurance Marketing Team! Love supporting hard-working SME brokers and bringing people together (networking that is… the clue’s in the name eh?). Love independence – always have, still do, always will.
LOVES: My family, my three amazing daughters, the Posh, England football, rugby and cricket, and 80s music. Not necessarily in that order!
Simon Drew Chief Financial Officer
WORK: Chief bean counter and guardian of the calculator, supporting my fellow colleagues by looking after the numbers both rear view looking and more importantly forward looking. I am the goalkeeper of the team, or the drummer, depending on your view.
LOVES: Travel, any music heavier than Queen, cycling, running, golf and sailing… oh and Mrs Drew!
Richard Pitt Chief Network Officer
WORK: My passion is to enable brokers to be the best that they want to be. The more people I can empower, the wider we can spread positivity and productivity, which is what I’m all about.
LOVES: My wife and three children mean the world to me and are at the centre of everything I do; they also mean that I spend much of my life as a taxi driver or spectator – but I get a round of golf in when I can!
Tim Rolfe Chief Product & Underwriting Officer
WORK: Love the people – I find it inspiring to be working with people who have a genuine belief in their cause and who will daily go the extra mile to help.
LOVE: Being with my family, curry, beer, curry and beer. In fact, curry and beer with my family.
Des O’Connor Chief Commercial Officer
WORK: My focus is firmly on the build out and delivery of our Partners strategy – so I spend all my waking hours in every corner of the UK getting to know and building relationships with dynamic and entrepreneurial minded independent brokerages. Every day I learn something new.
LOVES: When I’m not spending quality time with my lovely wife and four girls, I like to stay active – whether it’s coaching kids in our local Gaelic Football club, going to the gym, or in an effort to stay young, pursuing my passion for boxing both inside and outside of the ring. When it all gets too crazy I disappear to the West of Ireland for some peace and quiet…
