Richard Hodson, Director Insurance Broker, UKGlobal Broking Group

Richard is a third generation Insurance broker who’s first job was sitting behind a counter in an office on the outskirts of Leeds dealing with customers who would walk in to arrange their home and motor insurance.

In the last 15 years Richard has been immersed in a great number of different areas the insurance industry has to offer in the UK and around the world, from broking to individuals, SME’s as well as large corporations with global insurance programmes. Richard has worked around the UK, the London Market and spent five years in Australia where for part the time he headed up the Aerospace division of an international brokerage. For the last six he has been specialising in “Cyber” and the risks posed by the increased use of technology in our everyday and corporate lives.

Richard with two others founded UKGlobal Holdings in May 2016 and with these other investors purchased the majority shareholding in the independent broker UKGlobal Risk Solutions with offices in London and Manchester, they have since opened further offices Wakefield and Blackpool and are planning further expanison around the country.

In his spare time, he still enjoys playing the odd game of rugby and cricket.
