Full Guest Interview with John Jesson
In this episode, Ataraxia’s Helen is joined by John Jesson, former owner of RIB Group Ltd who sold in 2020 to a like-minded local broker. John talks to us about his and his fellow shareholder, Terry Harpham’s, initial reasons for joining Ataraxia in 2013. This was broadly driven by the objective of releasing some personal capital, and replacing their membership of the Willis Network by trading with our markets. We then talk about how the acquisition of local brokerage Assured Insurance Solutions Ltd has transformed their business, and conclude with the whole experience of negotiating the final sale of RIB Group to a local brokerage.
