“Instrumental” to the growth of the business – that was how Ethos Broking MD Richard Tuplin described Saffron Insurance’s Dave Beswick who has announced he will step down over the coming months.
Beswick, the company’s managing director, helped establish the firm as one of the largest brokerages in East Anglia. Just yesterday it completed its fourth acquisition since partnering up with Ethos Broking, part of the Bravo Group. However, for Beswick, the time is right to move on.
“I have spent many fantastic years building Saffron Insurance and feel privileged to have worked with such a great group of people,” he said. “I am leaving the business knowing that there is a strong team in place who will continue delivering market-leading services to customers.”
Tuplin noted that Beswick would be available to the business until January 2020 in an effort to ensure a smooth handover.
“Dave… has always thought of the business’s needs first and foremost,” he said. “We have agreed that he will hand the baton over, enabling him to spend time focusing on his other passions.
“Directors, Steve Seekings, Colin Fellowes and Keith McGregor will continue to lead the business together until a successor is found.”
