Vista, a B2B independent insurance broker, has appointed Dan Blake the company’s new head of private equity.
Blake is a chartered insurance broker and joins Vista from Arthur J Gallagher Insurance Brokers, where he managed a portfolio of clients, mainly in manufacturing and contracting, paying premiums in excess of £4,000,000.
He began his career with technical specialist J K Lee (now part of the Howden Group) and brings a wealth of analytical expertise with him to this new role.
While Blake will add further strength to Vista construction team, recognised in the region as one of the few independent broker teams with high quality sector expertise, his key role will be to lead Vista’s Private Equity practice.
With experience that spans owner-managed businesses to multi-national corporate organisations, many of whom were backed by Private Equity investors, Dan is excited to be bringing his insurance due diligence skills to the fast-paced Vista team.
