But not job losses, says broker

Heath Lambert has restructured four general insurance retail divisions into a single division.

The broker said the restructure would not result in any job losses.

Graham Barr, who currently heads Heath Lambert National, will take on the new role of managing director of products and markets, while Alan Pratten, at present head of Heath Lambert MFP team, will assume the role of managing director of retail clients and development.

The new retail division incorporates retail – major, financial and professional; retail – national; art, jewellery and private client; and commercial affinity and small business.

The broker has also adopted a new strapline – “big enough to deliver and small enough to care”.

Chief executive Adrian Colosso said: “This refocus of our business is to maximise client service, ensure we utilise all our vast experience and resources, and make Heath Lambert even more agile and fleet of foot.”

Meanwhile, Heath Lambert has won a tender for Christie’s high net worth account. It lost Christie’s corporate insurance services account to JLT last month.
