Dickson joins from specialist disability broker Fish Insurance, the company he joined as sales and marketing director in 2007 before taking on the managing director’s role. Prior to that he was sales and marketing director with motorcycle specialist Carole Nash, the company with whom he started his career in 1992.

Co-founder and former CEO Kevin Amphlett has taken on the role of group chairman. He said: “Because I was looking to hand over the reins of the business I founded this was not a decision I took either quickly or lightly.  I have been tracking Warren’s progress for some time and identified that he has not just exceptional ability but is a strong and inspirational leader.” Dickson takes the helm at a company which now boasts annual premium income of £90m, has over 30,000 clients and employs 52 staff at its Blackburn headquarters and Somerset offices. It is forecasting turnover in 2013 will hit £12m.
