David Thomson

David Thomson succeeds Christian Hörtkorn as board director for Finance & Legal.

He is the third director from Sutton Winson to serve on UNiBA Partners’ Board following Alan Sutton and Kevin MacEvoy’s quality focused contributions to the board.

David joined General Accident Insurance Company in Scotland in 1980. His roving role involved both underwriting and audit, working in more than 20 GA offices across the UK; his record was 13 months in one hotel! In 1986 he moved with GA to Brighton, where he still lives today.

David is the Managing Director of Sutton Winson, leading this expanding business of 130+ people with two offices (London & South Coast) which services the insurance and risk management needs of a growing number of corporate, international, SME, affinity personal lines and high net worth clients located throughout the UK.

David has played an active part in supporting UNiBA Partners’ global network before being elected to its Board in 2017. He has also been a longstanding Board member of the UK broker alliance UNA (formerly Unitas).

David is married to Catherine who works in cardiology. They have four children in various stages of final school years and university. When he is not working, David can normally be found on his knees, either gardening or practising yoga, or occasionally upright (hopefully) riding his much-loved Triumph motorbike.
