We are pleased to confirm Jamie Cowley has been promoted to lead our Professional Indemnity division.
Jamie is a valued member of our team, and over the time he has worked with the company, Jamie has proved excellent leadership, diligence, and commitment. Joining us as a Senior PI Underwriter initially, we are now eager to see Jamie thrive within his new role as Head of Professional Indemnity.
Jamie holds a Registered Professional Liability Underwriter (RPLU) designation, a specialist PI qualification held exclusively for professionals in the field that sets them apart from others in the industry. Having acquired this designation in his previous role at Brit Insurance, Jamie’s experience and skills within the professional indemnity sector have met the high standards as required by Folgate. Although it is an American credential, an RPLU is recognised globally.
Already this year, we have seen rapid growth within the company. We are in the process of extending our teams across each of our branches. In case you missed last week’s news, we revealed our new Head of Business Development, which you can read about here. We have more exciting news updates to stay tuned for within the coming weeks.
See below to get to know a little more about Jamie!
What do you enjoy most about working at Folgate?
Folgate is constantly expanding and evolving to stay relevant within the commercial marketplace. We are known for our traditional values, yet our innovative underwriting – It is all about adapting. In general, I most enjoy navigating the day-to-day challenges of trading.
What excites you most about the insurance industry?
In a highly competitive industry, there are always changes. From the products to policies, competitors, technology, market trends and expectations to continuously meet. The ever-changing environment reflects a changing world, and I have noticed the demand transform substantially within my career.
What responsibilities are you most looking forward to in your new role as Head of PI?
I look forward to managing the strategic development and direction of our PI proposition. Working with supportive brokers to this end is the most critical part of my role.
Jamie Cowley said, “I am delighted to be taking the role as Head of PI here at Folgate as we continue participation in this fast-paced and ever-changing market. I have a great hardworking team behind me which is growing with the book.”
Ian Russell, Chief Underwriting Officer commented “The PI market has changed significantly over the past 18 months for all the right reasons, and we have continued to grow our Professional Indemnity portfolio with our supporting brokers. Jamie has the right mentality and hunger to continue to build this class throughout the next cycle and beyond. Well done, Mr Cowley.“
