Jensten unveils strategic restructure to drive further growth

UK broker and underwriter Jensten has announced a strategic restructure which is anticipated to help the business drive further growth and bolster continued acquisition success.

It has been confirmed that the organisation is splitting its Wholesale division, with the Jensten London Market business unit reporting to the core broking trading division under Rob Organ.

Moreover, David Skinner, Managing Director of the 2023 acquisition Berns Brett, and Jensten‘s London and South-East region will assume oversight of the London Markets division.

At the same time, the company’s managing general agent (MGA) operation, Jensten Underwriting, will now operate as a standalone business unit, reporting to Alistair Hardie, Group Chief Executive.

As well as this, Rob Palmer, formerly the Franchise Director of Jensten’s expanding franchise and network division, will be transitioning to the role of Director of Distribution, also reporting to Rob Organ.

In this role, he is expected to lead the promotion of all Jensten’s services, which includes network, Wholesale Broking, and MGA products, to both internal and external markets.

Alistair Hardie, Group Chief Executive, Jensten Group, commented: “Over the past five years, we’ve transformed the MGA into a significant platform, and now it’s time to push for a step change in growth. Our ambition is to triple the premium managed by Jensten Underwriting within the next four years. Rob has excelled as Franchise Director with the network achieving record-breaking premiums in 2024 and experiencing the highest influx of new members since its inception in 1986. I have the utmost confidence in Rob’s ability to excel in his new role.”

Lastly, Jensten has also confirmed that as a result of these changes Simon Taylor, Managing Director, Wholesale will be leaving the organisation with immediate effect.

Alistair continued: “Simon has been instrumental in establishing our London Markets and MGA capabilities, and I would like to thank him for his contribution.”

In related news, Jensten recently obtained over £170 million in funding for 2024 growth.

In April, Jensten acquired Scrutton Bland Insurance Brokers, as well as specialist insurance broker Henry Seymour & Co.
