Towergate Insurance Brokers has welcomed Julian Hilton to the business as area director. Based in the company’s Taunton office, Julian will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the Bristol, Bideford and Jersey branches where he will oversee 75 staff and 6,500 clients.


Julian joins Towergate with over 30 years of experience in the insurance industry. With regional revenues of £8million, this is an important area for Towergate and Julian is determined to work with his team to increase the company’s presence, client base and revenues across the region.


Julian said: “Towergate is a business with ambitious growth plans throughout the UK and within the South West region we aim to develop both our staff and client base. Despite operating on a national level, we set a lot of store by our regional presence and it is our goal to offer the benefits of a national broker with the strength of local relationships.


“Towergate is a business that has been transformed in recent years and thanks to a number of key acquisitions in 2018, the business holds a strong market position. I look forward to being a big part of its bright future.”


Nick Hatch, South Region Managing Director for Towergate Insurance Brokers said “We are delighted to welcome Julian to the business. He is very well known and respected by our insurer partners and has a reputation of integrity and professionalism across our industry generally. I am sure he will make a positive impact on our clients and staff across the West Country and Channel Islands area.”
