Doug Smith joins Insight’s corporate insurance consultancy business

Doug Smith has joined Insight’s corporate insurance consultancy business.

Smith has held previous senior positions as chairman of Marsh’s private equity practice and latterly as non-executive deputy chairman of Willis’ M&A practice.
Smith will team up again with former Corporate Risk plc colleague Colin Paterson, the managing director and founder of Insight, and will focus on broadening and strengthening relationships with the private equity community.
He will also provide strategic advice on growing Insight’s concept of introducing “Client-Side” (i.e. in house) corporate insurance expertise, free from any commercial conflicts, directly to the PE community and their portfolio companies, and to corporate insurance buyers of medium/large corporates.
Paterson says: “We are delighted to have been able to attract the services of Doug Smith in an advisory non-executive role. Doug is recognised as being one of the UK’s most experienced insurance professionals and has a long-standing track record in advising private equity firms and corporate business from both operational and strategic perspectives on Insurance matters. We look forward to working together again and I am sure Insight will greatly benefit from his participation and professional input, which will further assist us in rolling out our unique client-side corporate insurance offering and attaining our expansion plans.”
Smith’s previous roles include chairman and founder of insurance broker Corporate Risk plc and director and chairman of Heart of Midlothian.
