About us

Roger & Diane Crowther and their PI team started writing business at the Sheffield branch of Towergate back in 1998 administering a very successful book of quality Financial Lines PI business with very low loss ratios for 14 years.

Unfortunately Roger and Diane had to exit Towergate in July 2012 due to Diane’s deteriorating health but decided to start a new smaller commercial PI operation underpinning this new business with the same high quality service, philosophies and values that they had built the previous business on.  It is with great sadness that having assisted with the start-up of the new business, Diane unexpectedly passed away due to worsening Cancer in January 2013 and she did not see the launch of The PI Desk Ltd.

Roger has subsequently brought some of the original PI team together with Amanda Kelly and Nicola Badger leading the new underwriting team. Both Amanda and Nicola have many years experience dealing with Financial Lines PI working with Roger for over 12 years and will be the hub of the new administration department.

Now the business has launched Roger, Amanda and Nicola are looking forward to building successful relationships with their chosen Insurer partners and FCA registered Insurance Intermediaries as well as bringing quality and competitive products to the direct client market.

What next – well The PI Desk Ltd has initially launched with a wide range of PI products as of December 2013 but are looking to establish a large ticket Liability team as well as a Property team with the backing of specific Insurers which will complete the commercial insurance product range needed to distribute to the Commercial Insurance Intermediary market.

Our thoughts are with Diane and we will be supporting our chosen charity Macmillan Cancer Support in various ways having just released over £3,000 in donations to them for use on local projects in Diane’s memory.
