Kerry London has gained accreditation as a Lloyd’s broker and appointed Nick Pay as its managing director.

Kerry London Group lifetime president and founder Joe Kelliher (pictured) said: “The future of Kerry London has never looked better and my personal thanks go to the staff for their hard work, expertise and commitment. Lloyd’s broker status is an extremely prestigious accreditation and a milestone in our company history as a leading, independent insurance broker.

“We will seek to maximise the new markets and products now available to us, opening up exciting opportunities for Kerry London and our customers. Nick’s appointment is a strategic and timely hire and we are delighted to have found someone of his talent and calibre to join our already strong management team.”

Pay joins Kerry London from Marsh, where he was senior vice president of the national corporate practice. He has worked for a number of large national broking firms and has previously worked on managing portfolios for UK and international accounts.

Kerry London said Pay’s experience of working in specialist sectors such as aviation, construction, heavy engineering, pharmaceuticals and retail would help the company grow its dominance in the construction sector and other specialist areas.

Pay said: “Achieving Lloyd’s broker status is fantastic news for Kerry London and demonstrates the firm’s commitment to professional expertise, quality and innovation. I am eager to join my new colleagues and build on this success story, leveraging capabilities and synergies across the group to drive further competitive advantage and growth.”
