Pamela Fowler will head sales team in Scotland and Northern Ireland

Arthur J Gallagher has hired RSA’s Pamela Fowler as regional sales director in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Fowler will take up the newly created role in January after more than 20 years at RSA. She was most recently RSA’s commercial account director for Oval, Towergate and Giles, which was bought by Gallagher this year.

Brendan McManus, chief executive of UK Retail at Gallagher, said: “Having completed the deal to buy Giles last week, we now have a much stronger and more powerful proposition to offer clients across our regional heartlands.

“Pamela’s addition to the team is yet more evidence of our determination to invest in the best talent available to ensure we play a strong role in every insurance community and are seen as local leaders.”

Fowler said: “I’m really thrilled to be joining the team at Arthur J Gallagher at such an exciting time. To be part of such a vibrant and growing business is an opportunity I couldn’t resist.”
