“Our expansion has been one of need as opposed to greed, says SATIB’s Managing Director, Gavin Courtenay. We have grown in response to our clients needs. Our success has always been attributable in part to our knowledgeable staff and the willingness of insurers to adapt policy wordings to accommodate the specific risk exposures of our niche market clients.”
At the helm of SATIB C&I is Gavin George as Chairman with William Croxton, a new addition to the SATIB team, who takes up the position of Managing Director.
“Both men bring with them a wealth of experience and knowledge and have been deeply entrenched in the industry for many years,” says Courtenay. Gavin George has been with SATIB since 2005, following a very successful career as Executive Director at Glenrand MIB, where he was responsible for the corporate and commercial divisions after the company’s listing in 1997.
George’s career began at Incorporated General Insurances (IGI) in 1967 and over the past 44 years, he moved through the ranks at Bibsal, Glenrand MIB and Marsh SA. He holds ACII and AIISA qualifications and has managed some impressive key accounts over the years, including de Beers, South African Breweries, Tsogo Sun and the JD Group. George says that his personal involvement in the listing of Glenrand MIB and conducting insurance due diligence exercises for SAB Beer Division in Eastern European countries such as Romania, Hungary and Poland as well as the USA were among his career highlights besides being challenging, educational and great fun. He is married with 3 children and enjoys spending time in the bush and indulging in his love of painting and sculpting. He is an avid rugby and cricket supporter.
“With knowledge and expertise being key components to our client servicing commitment, the appointment of William Croxton is fortuitous, says Courtenay. His experience with Macsteel, Nissan, SAAB, Cape Gate and Edgars are invaluable.”
