John McNeill, Client Director

John Mcneill has 15 years’ experience in the insurance industry and was born in Northern Ireland.  He spent five years at Towergate (a UK national broker), working in an experienced specialist liability team.  John then moved on to work at one of the world’s largest insurance broking firms, Gallagher, to work in an insurance specialist team focusing on IT risks and technology-related liabilities.  Most of John’s work prior to joining Jobson James Rail has been focused on niche insurance products and specialisms.

To continue the theme of becoming an insurance broker with a specialism, John joined Jobson James Rail and has since focused on contractual liability specifically for rail infrastructure companies/contractors (working in all stages of GRIP) and rail labour supply agents.

John is Dip CII and NEBOSH qualified and is developing his specialism by continuing to work towards his Advanced Diploma.  He uses his risk management and insurance knowledge to help clients understand their risk profile, how to better manage risk and transfer risk to a rail specialist insurer.

He is a keen golfer and enjoys the gym when he gets time away from giving advice on a railway contractual liabilities.  John’s also a member of the Birmingham Whisky club and enjoys a nice dram and a trip away to whisky distilleries when the opportunity arises.
