Leading insurance broker Aston Lark, a Howden company, is building its team in Wales with a key new hire, as it looks to cement its place within the region.
Catherine Robinson, from Neath, has joined Aston Lark as an Account Executive, and will play a key role in growing the company’s client base within South Wales.
Catherine has over 25 years of experience in the industry, spending her career so far at Keen Insurance, where she held the position of Director and Commercial Insurance Broker.
Catherine will be responsible for building and managing Aston Lark’s growing commercial client portfolio and will work closely with the firm’s Regional Director Gary Stevens.
Discussing her new role, Catherine said: “I’m thrilled to have joined such a dynamic and forward-thinking organisation during this exciting period of growth.
“I look forward to playing a part in developing our offering within South Wales and empowering our clients through comprehensive insurance solutions.”
Outside of work, Catherine is a keen runner and fundraiser, having raised over £3,000 during her first London Marathon this year for Young Lives vs Cancer, and will be running the Edinburgh Marathon for the same charity in 2024.
Regional Director for South Wales, Gary Stevens, added: “Catherine brings with her a wealth of experience in the insurance industry and is poised to make a significant impact in terms of expanding our network.
“Her ability to foster strong relationships with clients, stakeholders, and industry partners will undoubtedly strengthen our position as a leading insurance provider and we’re very pleased to have her on board.”
The new South Wales office was launched earlier this year with Gary at the helm, one of several strategic locations where Aston Lark intends to grow its headcount. Gary brings with him almost four decades of experience in the insurance industry, of which 21 have been devoted to delivering insurance broking services in Wales.
Aston Lark, part of Howden Group since April 2022, has more than 75 offices in the UK and Ireland, with 2,000 employees serving 200,000 customers.
