Watts named branch director of Bluefin’s Stockport office

Bluefin has hired former Towergate Midlands regional managing director Paul Watts as Stockport branch director, corporate division.

He will report to Bluefin corporate division head Kenny Hogg.

Watts left Towergate in December 2012 following a management shake-up in the broking group’s Midlands division.

Towergate’s Midlands and Central regions were subsequently merged.

In his new role at Bluefin, Watts will oversee client service and the growth of new corporate business in the Stockport branch.

As part of Bluefin’s corporate leadership team, Watts will also contribute to the development of the broker’s offering in the mid-large corporate sector.

Watts said: “I am delighted to be joining Bluefin and the Corporate team  in Stockport. I look forward to working with them  to capitalise on Bluefin’s strong position in the sector and to developing outstanding opportunities for future and existing clients.”

Hogg added: “Bluefin has a clear strategy to further develop its offering for the mid-large corporate sector, where risks can fall below the appetite of very large brokers and beyond the reach of provincial players. Paul will be a tremendous asset to our clients in this segment and in developing our offering for them.”
