James Baskeyfield – Head of Broking 


1. Career history before Reich

After University I joined JK Lee as a Graduate Account Manager before moving to Reich.

2. Why did you choose to work for Reich

Reich were a hugely respected name in the Insurance market and I knew they had a reputation for developing staff, I did my research and it was clear that they were a forward thinking company with huge potential and a history of success. Finally, I met with Simon Taylor and I remember him saying to me that if I joined Reich it would be the best decision I ever made from a career perspective and to this day he has been completely correct.

3. Your career within Reich

Starting out as a Commercial Broking Executive working closely with Jon Tynan our Head of New Business, we really hit the ground running, building the foundations of the broking department which has been formed now.

In October last year I was made Group Broking Manager by our CEO Simon Taylor and Chairman Danny Lopian and now we have a team of 6 brokers working on both Commercial and Property for the company.

4. What’s the best thing about working for Reich

I love that we are dynamic and forward thinking in our approach. As a company that is constantly looking at ways in which to improve its service to clients and improve its insurer relationships, it has always been vital for me to know that we will always strive to do things better.

5. Where do you see your future within Reich

Hopefully, I will continue to develop in my role and learn from those around me and providing I continue to strive for success then I’m sure the future will take care of itself.

Our core values

We want to be a great place to work where, as part of the Reich family, our employees feel motivated to be the best they can be.
