Executive Director of Livestock, Aquaculture and Fisheries - Gallagher

A trained fish biologist, Dan worked in fish health research before joining the insurance sector in 2000. Starting his insurance career as a specialist aquaculture claims broker, he went on to become the senior aquaculture underwriter at RSA before moving back into broking, heading up the Livestock, Aquaculture and Fisheries Division at WTW.

While there he also helped develop a number of environmental insurance initiatives looking at protecting natural capital, and also the use of bundled financial products to incentivise environmental stewardship in the fishing and farming sectors.

Recently Dan moved to Gallagher as Executive Director of the UK Livestock, Aquaculture and Fisheries Division, and is also a member of the Gallagher UK ESG Committee.

Outside of insurance Dan is also a Trustee of the Shark Trust, a UK charity supporting the global conservation of sharks, skates and rays.
