Towergate Insurance Executive Committee Climbs New Heights for
28th August 2012
Towergate Insurance will be marking 15 years in the insurance
industry this September with the Executive Committee taking on a
classic Yorkshire challenge for charity.
Group CEO Mark Hodges and his team will be heading to the North
of England, on Friday 21st September, to take on the Yorkshire
Three Peaks with the aim of raising funds for the Towergate
The group will have just 12 hours to conquer the three highest
peaks in the county; Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Inglebrook
Those taking part in the challenge on the day will be:
Mark Hodges, Group CEO, Scott Egan, Group CFO, Michael Rea, CEO
Retail, Clive Nathan, CEO Underwriting, Lucinda Charles-Jones,
Group HR Director, Tim Johnson, CEO Paymentshield and Networks and
Mike Newman, Group Chief Information Officer.
Mark Hodges, Group CEO, said:
"The Towergate story, beginning back in 1997, is a fantastic
tale of dogged determination, innovation and courage. As we move
into our 15th year, we are keen to celebrate these accomplishments
in keeping with our mantra “Make Money, Have Fun, Do Good".
Our employees and customers have raised over £6 million on
behalf of the Towergate Charitable Foundation since 2005. It feels
only right that the Executive team mark the 15 year anniversary by
getting stuck into a challenge which genuinely requires physical
and mental stamina and also benefits the causes which are close to
all of our hearts. We hope that our industry friends and colleagues
will support this endeavour which will benefit Great Ormond Street
Hospital, the NSPCC, Cancer Research UK and the various other
wonderful UK charities which form our foundation."
Towergate Insurance, which was founded in 1997 by Peter Cullum
CBE, has grown to become one of the largest distributors of
insurance in the UK, comprising of more than 120 businesses and
5,500 employees across the length and breadth of the UK. Staff will
enjoy a series of celebrations and local fundraising events to mark
the 15 year anniversary of the group this September.
