We are delighted to announce that Richard Packman has joined Cox Mahon as a Director.
Richard brings with him a wealth of experience and we are looking forward to working with him. Richard will be responsible for spearheading the business development and controlled growth of the company as Cox Mahon looks forward to the next exciting phase of its story. Richard is a professionally qualified insurance practitioner (ACII) with over 35 years’ experience in the insurance industry.

He relocated to Guernsey in 1999 to take the position of director within the Channel Islands’ largest insurance business, where he headed their professional risks division advising some of Guernsey’s largest financial institutions. He also created a dedicated private client/High Net Worth division.
Seeking a new challenge, he moved to Jersey in 2006 to launch and run a new start-up insurance firm, providing both insurance broking and captive insurance management services to a wide range of prestigious clients.
