Cherry Godfrey Jersey has appointed Tim Rattray as new Managing Director and has been given the opportunity to grow their insurance business.
The Jersey office opened in 2000 offering finance and insurance products and now they offer a full suite of products including insurance, mortgages and loans under one roof.
Originally from Cheshire, Tim moved to the Isle of Man when he was fifteen, where he began his career in insurance. He spent 15 years in London working in several large brokerages dealing with FTSE 250 companies before returning to the Isle of Man in 2005 to open an office for Rossborough. In the 12 years he was there as Managing Director the business grew from being a fledging operation to having 22 employees.
Tim has over 30 years’ experience in the insurance industry with specialist knowledge of professional indemnity, directors’ & officers’ liability and cyber risks cover.
Cherry Godfrey Group Managing Director Dave Cherry says:
“We are delighted that Tim has agreed to join the company. His undeniable expertise and experience will be a powerful tool as we aim to grow our business in Jersey and we welcome him and his family to Cherry Godfrey.”
Tim says the decision to join Cherry Godfrey was an easy one to make: “The new challenge of leading the Jersey’s talented team is extremely exciting. The company has added many new products to its portfolio and its focus on customer care and service is the best I have seen in my career. Jersey provides such a beautiful environment and quality of life that my wife and two daughters love being here.
“The company is currently offering loans, mortgages and insurance. I would like to develop the commercial insurance arm, introduce private medical insurance as well as cyber insurance, which is a very hot topic at the moment.”
