Portfolio Manager - Marine & Cargo
Rob Birchard is a portfolio manager for marine cargo business at Rokstone.
Rob started his insurance career in 1978 during which time he has worked in broking, for JH Minet (now Aon) and Alexander Forbes (now Lockton); and underwriting, for XL syndicate (now AXA XL), and the Sirius syndicate. He joined Rokstone in March 2021, having also recently worked for Starstone, Argenta, and Pioneer/K2.
Outside of work, Rob is a classic car enthusiast, and also enjoys golf, watercolour painting, and gardening.
“I spent most of my 43-year career sitting on the box in Lloyd’s and felt that I wanted a change. I had spent five months at Pioneer/K2 and liked the change of environment. So when I was approached by Rokstone, it seemed the right fit for me.”
