Away from the office Gavin is a Leicester City season ticket holder and also a keen traveller.  In the past year he took the opportunity to combine these passions and travel abroad to watch Leicester play in the Champions League.  By his own admission, it may be a very long time before he is able to do this again!

Josh began his career in insurance just over two years ago when he joined BHIB as an apprentice after completing his A-levels.  He was among the first group of graduates from the Brokerbility Academy and is now building up his experiences and progressing his career within the company.

Outside of work, you will normally find Josh watching sport with his main interests being football and cricket.  He is a keen footballer and during the summer months he relaxes by attending music festivals with his friends.

Dan Harrison Corporate Account Broker

Having started his career as an apprentice, Dan is now in his 5th year in the insurance industry, and joined us in 2016.

During that short time Dan has already made a big impression.  He has progressed to managing some of our larger clients, is part of a team that looks into the development of our IT platforms, and has also passed a significant module as he studies towards his Diploma in insurance.

In his spare time. Dan is a keen rugby player and a supporter of the Leicester Tigers. He also has his hands full looking after a boisterous Great Dane puppy that (at the time of writing) has an Instagram following of almost 2,500 people!
