SOCIETY OF INSURANCE BROKING (SIB)

Kevin is managing director of Yutree Insurance. Yutree is based in Newmarket and is a commercial insurance broker and underwriting agency offering commercial solutions for clients and brokers.

The core objective of the SIB is to improve consumer confidence and trust in the profession. Kevin is the inaugural chair of the SIB.
