A director at Broadway Insurance Brokers has been named as one the industry’s top women performers for the second successive year.

Eleanor Moore, who is the firm’s Director of Private Clients, is one of 56 “exceptional” women to be recognised as Elite Women by Insurance Business magazine.

Organisers said that inclusion in the listing, which is made up of some of the country’s best known insurance executives, was limited to those who had made a “meaningful contribution” to the domestic insurance market over the last 12 months.

Ms Moore has played a significant role in Broadway’s continued expansion during the period.

Despite only launching just over three years ago, the firm arranged cover for corporate and private assets worth more than £2 billion in 2023.

Broadway also saw a threefold increase in the amount of Gross Written Premiums (GWPs) which it generates to £7.5 million.

Ms Moore has described how retaining her place in the Elite Women ranking is an indication of the firm’s progress.

However, she also said that it provided a “welcome opportunity” to pay tribute to those who had enabled individuals on the list to fulfil their professional promise.

“I am thrilled to be included once more as an Elite Women, not least because it shows how Broadway continues to take great further strides forward.

“Whilst I am fully aware of how hard I have had to work over the last three decades to get to where I am in the industry, I know that many people within it have been helped by others – both men and women – to achieve our ambitions.

“That element of support is something which we regard as integral to the working environment at Broadway.

“I would like to think that it’s one reason why we are successful and why, in turn, we are attracting an increasing number of clients and colleagues, who themselves possess enormous talent.”

This year is the sixth annual edition of Insurance Business’s Elite Women listing. A six-strong judging panel chose the final group of 56 women from all of the individuals nominated.

Each submission had to give information about the “achievements and initiatives” of the women put forward, as well as detailing their “professional accomplishments”.

Ms Moore was one of Broadway’s first senior hires and has fully justified her appointment by helping the firm become one of the largest high net worth insurance specialist outside London.

Broadway only opened its doors in 2020 but is already regarded as the go-to broker for many of the region’s entrepreneurs and most high-profile sports clubs and athletes.

The firm advises businesses in the manufacturing, healthcare, IT, engineering and property industries, with a “significant” number turning over in excess of £250 million.

In the course of the last year, Broadway has made a string of senior appointments, including Emma Wood as its Director of Healthcare, Michelle Neary also came in as Head of Client Money and Credit Control and Gary Ward as the firm’s Director of Operations, Internal Audit, Risk and Compliance.

Last year, the firm picked up the Commercial Lines Specialist Broker of the Year title at the National Insurance Awards and was singled out for its “personal, high-touch service” in a ranking compiled by Spear’s magazine.

Broadway was the only North West broker to feature in that list and a separate classification of leading risk management advisors drawn up by Insurance Business magazine.
