Mike was one of the four insurance industry experts who established the First Central Group of Companies in 2008. They recognised vast business opportunities presented by the emergence of price comparison websites, or aggregators, as distribution channels in the UK motor insurance market.
Then and now Mike advocates the Group’s central tenet: the drive for simplicity in a market traditionally hampered by jargon and complexity.
An alumni of Aston University, Mike is a management accountant whose distinguished insurance career spans over 20 years. Beginning at Lloyd’s and including periods at Amlin, Benfield and Zenith, he left the Lloyd’s managing agency he’d formed to establish the First Central Group.
