Meet the Team
The Castlemead Team
At Castlemead Insurance Brokers, our people are at the heart of everything we do.
Richard Ingleby, ACII | Managing Director
Richard believes that to provide a first-class insurance broking service, you need to gain a deep understand of your client’s businesses. From the markets they operate in, down to the contractual terms they have with clients and suppliers – it all impacts on insurance and risk management.
Richard’s client base covers a wide range of industries including aerospace, construction, information technology, transportation and retail. Richard qualified as an associate of the Chartered Insurance Institute in 2005, and became Castlemead’s Managing Director in 2006.
