UK Broker Awards: Meet the Shortlist - Young Broker of the Year


In the run up to the 2020 UK Broker Awards Insurance Age is profiling all the shortlisted firms and individuals, with today’s focus being The Young Broker of the Year.

Angus Carnegie-Brown – McGill and Partners
Since starting his career in insurance in 2013 Angus has focussed on handling and servicing heavy industry, energy and property accounts, with a particular focus on power generation and utilities, acquiring a broad range of knowledge of conventional and renewable power technologies across the world. He joined McGill and Partners early on and took it upon himself to help in a variety of areas as the business has grown. He worked on early projects, including the development of its initial market reform contract templates now widely used across the firm. He was the first to try out our new processes and technology, continually providing invaluable feedback to the business.

Kieran Molloy – PIUA
Kieran joined PIUA in October 2017 and immediately impressed with his ability to grasp the technical understanding and knowledge required to both underwrite and broke standard/non-standard risks. Since then Kieran has become an instrumental part of the PIUA team, even securing and managing PIUA’s second largest client, holding underwriting responsibility for the company’s highest binder. This year, he has also been nominated as a ‘Rising Star’ finalist in the Ardonagh Group employee awards which encompasses over 6,000 employees group wide.

George Johnson – Aon
An alumnus of both the Aon Apprenticeship and Graduate programmes - where he completed rotations with a wide range of teams at Aon gaining broad and invaluable experience - George is now rising to the challenge of a quickly evolving cyber market and is part of Aon’s Cyber & Commercial E&O team.

James Noble – MyFirstUK
James is the founder of MyfirstUK – a business he founded at the age of 20 in 2013 - with zero previous insurance experience. Spotting what he saw as a gap in the market for a company that really helped young drivers in the UK with advice specific to them, engaging in a way that they understand, and helping to guide them to the best policy, James’ business has gone from strength to strength over the last seven years.

Freddie Trusselle - McGill and Partners
Since joining McGill and Partners Freddie has been praised for quickly developing from a pure account handling role, to one that is now client and market facing. He has also been lauded for his independent entrepreneurial spirit and inventiveness, highlighted by the development of a new ancillary cargo cyber offering. Utilising brand new markets, Freddie independently created a product, closing gaps in cyber cover for cargo clients, which are often excluded by mainstream cargo underwriters.
