Mark Hutchings returns to Berkeley Alexander as managing director
Berkeley Alexander has appointed Mark Hutchings as managing director, returning to the insurance provider from Uinsure where he was national account manager and more recently head of sales and distribution.


The existing managing director, Geoff Hall, takes on a newly created role of chairman.

With more than 20 years’ General Insurance (GI) experience in both sales and management positions, his appointment provides a stable succession plan, said Berkeley Alexander.

Geoff Hall said: “This appointment will strengthen the management team in readiness for the next stage of our growth. There’s no one I would trust more or who would be better suited to take the helm at Berkeley Alexander.

“I have the utmost respect for Mark having worked with him for many years and seen his career flourish and I know that I’ll be handing over the reins in time to a safe pair of hands, but equally someone who is never afraid to embrace innovation.

“For me, 2019 marks 30-years at Berkeley Alexander and during that time I’ve had the pleasure of seeing this business to go from a small high street broker in Lewes, to be a highly regarded provider of general insurance and one of the market leaders in non-standard GI to the intermediary mortgage market.  I’m proud of what we have achieved so far and excited to see what the future will hold for the company in the coming years.”

Mark Hutchings (pictured) said he was honoured and delighted to be back at Berkeley Alexander. He said: “I have got some big boots to fill, but Geoff’s support and guidance in the next few years will be invaluable while I get my teeth into the role.”


Mark Hutchings was a finalist at the British Mortgage Awards as business leader for general insurance and protection for three years in a row, from 2012 to 2014.
