Mark worked in the reinsurance market for six years before moving into insurance and reinsurance recruitment (and latterly executive search) in 1994. He founded Stephens Selection in 2009 and renamed the company to Stephens Rickard in 2018 when Rupert became partner. Mark has a track record of completed mandates across all Board/Executive Committee disciplines with senior underwriting / underwriting leadership positions being a particular forte. Although Mark’s client base in mainly made up of risk carriers, he also works with intermediaries and professional services firms on projects in the UK and internationally. Established organisations make up the bulk of the client base, but start-ups are of particular interest.
