Martin Hall, Head of Leisure for PIB Insurance Brokers answers 5 questions on his time at PIB and his journey - from providing insurance solutions to the legal sector through to further developing the PIB Leisure proposition. Read more about Martin’s time at PIB, from when it all started:
1. Tell us about yourself!
I’ve been in insurance since the age of 18 and started with a small owner managed broker in Tamworth where I live and spent my days writing cover notes and opening post! I have had several roles since then, mostly in business development and I joined PIB in 2014 when they began their journey. I still live in Tamworth with my wife Claire and my two boys Thomas and Charley.
2. Could you briefly explain the PIB Leisure proposition?
PIB provides versatile and specialist insurance solutions for theme parks and leisure attractions including petting zoos, water parks, piers and museums.
Our proposition is based on a true understanding of the leisure market – with a team of people who live and breathe our clients’ “world”. We don’t take a standard approach because we know how clients operate and the challenges they face day to day. We have a risk management and claims assistance offering with insurers who want to meet our clients and hear their story. Our approach is very much relationship led.
3. What makes you different from competitors?
I have worked within this sector for many years as someone who really spends time with their clients. The steel behind what I do is that I’m on the ground, helping, advising and co-ordinating. Owners and operators of leisure businesses are very unique and we know that insurers have an appetite for well-managed risks.
4. What can we look forward to next with your team?
We will be attending some upcoming events as we prefer to take the face to face approach with clients; we are active members of associations including BALPPA (The British Association of Leisure Parks, Piers and Attractions), BIAZA (British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums).
5. What excites you about being part of PIB?
Being part of the PIB story from the beginning is exciting and I'm very proud of what we have achieved so far. Developing client relationships and of course winning new ones is fantastic so I'm looking forward to the future here.
