The good old days?

When and how did you start in insurance broking?

I started work in insurance in 1958 after I completed my national service. I joined the Yorkshire, followed by the Alliance, which I left in 1965 having been headhunted by a Glasgow firm of insurance brokers called C&N Black.

That was also the year I received my Fellow of the Chartered Insurance Institute status. It did not turn out the way I had hoped at that firm so I left in 1968 to start out on my own with two partners.
