La Playa has made the following changes to its line-up:
Matthew Mullee, co-founder and formerly Director: Private Client has been appointed Director of Growth & Acquisition. His brief is to seek out highly-motivated specialist brokers and teams looking for an opportunity to build a business within a dynamic and international team of professionals; and to develop high-level strategic relationships with other specialist advisers and affinity groups in the niche sectors served by La Playa.
Mike Taylor-West, ACII, formerly Head of Private Client and Marine, London has been promoted to Director: Private Client & Marine.
New York-licensed entertainment specialist Casey Grabowski joins as Account Executive in the Media, Arts & Entertainment practice, working across both the London and New York offices.
Charles Thomson joins as Account Executive in the Private Client team, based in the London office.
International Business graduate Adam Nix joins as Account Handler across the Media, Arts & Entertainment and Science & Technology practices.
“Working in niche sectors that are by nature high-growth and international, our clients’ lives are increasingly ‘transatlantic’”. says CEO Mark Boon, ACII. “With the huge opportunities for technology export and collaboration between the UK and US, the international nature and digitisation of media and the arts, and the burgeoning class of international super-rich moving fine art collections and yachts between homes, our position is almost unique: a boutique-sized, international, niche broker – providing seamless insurance across assets, homes and businesses on both sides of the pond. We love what we do – and we have a strong growth appetite!”
La Playa is the only insurance partner in the UKTI’s UK Advisory Network and in London & Partners, the inward investment agency run by the Mayoral Office.
