Meet the Member - Elliot Mcquillan of McQuillan Insurance Brokers Ltd

Elliot McQuillan

• Name of Business?  McQuillan Insurance Brokers Ltd.

• Who are you?  Elliot McQuillan.

• What sets you apart from the competition?  We strive to live and breathe our core values, passion, commitment, honesty and quality.  If I was to pick out the one that sets us apart it would be commitment.  In day to day life I hate letting people down and that is something I have ingrained in our business - we are always on hand when our clients need us the most.

• How did the business come about?  Having been in commercial insurance since 2003, many of those years spent in business development, ultimately I think it was a natural progression for me to set up McQuillan Insurance Brokers and firmly establish an independent brokerage with Warrington at its roots.

• What are your main target markets?  We are general commercial insurance brokers so can cater for anything from your high street shops & salons to large multi-national companies. Our niches are generally in property/real estate, construction, wholesale & distribution, however we can help any SME, public, private, PLC or not for profit organisation source suitable and cost effective insurance policies.

• How long has your business been in existence?  We launched the business in June 2019

• How many staff do you employ?  We have a team of 3 at the moment, with our ambitions to grow our team to 5 in 2020.

• What job or achievement makes you most proud?  It’s got to be setting up and establishing McQuillan Insurance Brokers in my home town.

• Where do you see the business being in five years?  We are on track to break £1,000,000 within our first 12 months.  In five years, our aim is to manage gross written premiums in excess of £7,000,000.

• Why Warrington?  As well as the booming business economy and the opportunity that brings, I am born and bred here so it was a no brainer.

  • Tell us one interesting thing about the business that might surprise us?  One of our corporate clients is a household name and has a Royal Warrant to provide goods or services to her Majesty the Queen.  Something we are extremely proud of.

• Tell us one interesting thing about you that people might not know? (ie, hobbies, amusing fact, etc)  You will need to arrange a meeting to find out!

• Fantasy dinner party – which six people alive or dead would you invite?  David Beckham, Rod Stewart, Leonardo Di-Caprio, Robin Williams, Will Smith & George Best.
