John Cowell

Deputy Class Underwriter - UK & International

Perfecting the dove-tail joint.

John has happy memories of his grandfather, a violin and fine instrument maker working away in his workshop. The joy of carpentry has continued through John, who spends many a weekend creating piles of saw dust as he practices his hand cut dove tail joints or turns wood on his lathe.

John is not adverse to rolling up his sleeves and getting involved with the nitty gritty of day to day business. He believes if you have the passion to achieve and the right tools then with a little help and hard work you can produce something to be proud of.

John has over 30 years’ experience in the UK and International insurance markets. As Deputy Class Underwriter John is involved in all aspects of our UK and International business, from creating new binding authorities and developing new products to underwriting referrals. John is always on hand to provide mentoring and training to the junior underwriters at DTW.

“I enjoy seeing our partners’ businesses succeed because if they flourish then so will we. At DTW1991 I get the opportunity to work with a variety of people and companies with differing business styles, and we work hard to ensure we support their aspirations and create long term successful relationships.”
