Kelvin Smith Insurance Brokers adds two directors to its board

Kelvin Smith Insurance Brokers has appointed Rena Ross (pictured above right) and Scott Gardner (pictured above left) as directors. The two will sit on the company’s board alongside managing director Stephen Travers (pictured above centre).

Both Ross and Gardner are veteran employees of the Glasgow-based brokerage and were instrumental in the company’s growth, which has added £1 million turnover annually since 2012. Founded in November 1982, Kelvin Smith currently has 40 employees.

Gardner celebrated his 10t anniversary with the company last year. His appointment recognises the key role he played in establishing Kelvin Smith’s foothold in the haulage, construction, and hospitality sectors.

Ross, who has worked in every department during her more than 20 years at Kelvin Smith, is now responsible for the firm’s more than 500 fleet insurance clients.

“Finding and keeping good people is fundamental to the success of our business,” Travers said. “Rena and Scott have been integral to our growth. Scott has played a key role in winning new clients, while Rena is instrumental in providing the quality service that keeps them with us. Their attitude and skills are an example to everyone in the team. We will continue to invest in our talent, to provide ways for great people to build their careers within Kelvin Smith. Both Rena and Scott were fairly early in their careers when they joined us. Their progression to the position of director shows what’s possible when aptitude and attitude combine.”

The two new directors will also play key roles in Kelvin Smith’s charity efforts, the company said. As part of its 40th anniversary celebration, Kelvin Smith is aiming to raise £80,000 in donations for local Glasgow charities, as well as a variety of refugee charities across the UK.

Since the beginning of April, Kelvin Smith has donated £15 for every policy renewal, and it will hold various fundraising initiatives, including a sponsored cycling event and charity lunch.
