Gallagher has continued its investment in sector-specific expertise with the appointment of Julie Scott FCII into its expanding Specialty construction division. Julie, who joins with immediate effect, will have a specific focus on business development in the UK construction market.
Bringing more than three decades’ experience in the wider construction industry, Julie has held roles in handling, production, placement, servicing and claims throughout her career. Previously, Julie spent 26 years at JLT where she formed its PFI/PPP team, before leaving as a partner in 2016.
John Thompson, Managing Director of Construction in Gallagher’s London Specialty division, said: “The UK construction industry segment remains a key part of our growth trajectory, and we are committed to bringing the highest calibre talent on board as we turn our strategy into reality. Julie’s impressive career history speaks for itself, and her strong relationships within the contractor, infrastructure fund, owner and developer markets make her the ideal candidate as we continue to pursue new business in the UK and internationally. The UK team has the drive and ambition to provide a unique offering in this sector. I am excited to see how this division will develop under her additional expertise.
Julie Scott said: “It’s great to join the Gallagher group at such an exciting time. The deciding factor for me was the entrepreneurial nature of the company, particularly in providing the best solutions for existing and prospective clients. I look forward to working with the rest of the team to broaden their reach into the UK construction sector even further.”
