Leading insurance broker Aston Lark, a Howden company, has made another key hire as it looks to expand its offering within Wales.
Alex Davies, from Brynmawr, has joined Aston Lark as an Account Executive and is part of a growing team responsible for expanding the company’s client base within this new region.
Alex joins with over 13 years of experience in the industry, beginning her career at Abergavenny firm FR Ball, where she worked with both commercial and personal clients, and led on the creation of the firm’s successful school absence insurance arm.
After 11 years, Alex made the move to national firm Thomas Carroll, where she worked on a range of commercial insurance matters, as well as again helping the company to establish its staff absence insurance offering.
Joining Aston Lark last month, Alex is now part of a rapidly growing team serving the South Wales region and will work closely with Regional Director Gary Stevens to cement the firm’s presence.
Discussing her new role, Alex said: “I’m so pleased to be joining Aston Lark at the beginning of the firm’s journey within South Wales and was very much drawn to Gary’s enthusiasm for the business.
“We’re already making great strides in terms of onboarding new clients, and I look forward to working closely with my new colleagues to continue this momentum.”
Regional Director for South Wales, Gary Stevens, added: “Alex is positioned to contribute significantly to Aston Lark’s growth and success. Her experience and dedication will undoubtedly make a meaningful impact.
“Alex is now part of a quickly growing team of driven professionals who share a common vision, and I’m very pleased that she will now play a big part in Aston Lark’s growth story in South Wales.”
Earlier this year, Aston Lark inaugurated its new office in South Wales under the leadership of Gary. His extensive experience in the insurance industry spans nearly four decades, including 21 years dedicated to providing insurance broking services specifically 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.
