Introducing Steve Burns – Head of IronMarket Risk Management

Back in December 2019 Stephen Burns took the biggest step of his career leaving a large corporate group where he had spent 14 years progressing his career and developing his knowledge and expertise within the insurance industry and embarked on setting up his own Independent Insurance Broker with the support of IronMarket and in particular our Managing Partner Wes Wilkes.

Fast forward 6 months to June 1st and IronMarket Risk Management was born. “Although it’s never the perfect time to take a big risk like starting a business but doing so during a global pandemic certainly felt less than ideal. That said, I wouldn’t have it any other way! – it has highlighted the true value of a service provider such as ourselves in the time of need and the importance of ensuring that you have insurance cover that is tailored specifically to your business needs rather than striving for the cheapest option.”

For business owner’s risks present themselves at every corner, from minor disruptions to major outages, being unprepared can not only affect a business – but ruin it. However, with Steve’s experience, knowledge, and insight he is able to proactively remedy these risks to ensure clients business’ continue to thrive – even if the worst happens.

IronMarket’s Managing Partner Wes comments ‘Our client’s financial wellbeing is central to our existing client services. So, our risk management service complements this by giving client’s even better security and peace of mind. In truth, we’ve known that this arm to our well-established services has been required for some time. Our clients have wanted it – and clients trust our expertise in getting it right. Therefore, we’ve taken their demand onboard and Steve will bring the very best service to our clients – he’s also been a great fit for our team and culture at IronMarket so it’s great to have him onboard’.
