Formed in 1997 the Towergate Group has grown dramatically to become one of the UK’s largest intermediaries for commercial and specialist personal insurances.

We would not have been able to achieve such dramatic growth in a mature and saturated market without having the ability to adapt quickly to constant change, be creative and think innovatively.

Towergate Insurance has a long and successful history of creating bespoke risk management and insurance solutions specifically tailored to the individual needs of a diverse client base. We are a leading independent broker, capable of delivering integrated risk management advice and high volume processing requirements.

Born in Bulawayo and brought up in Zimbabwe, Mike Williams joined Leicester Tigers in the summer of 2015 and made an immediate impact with his abrasive ball-carrying and strength in defence.

Able to play at lock or flanker, Williams collected man-of-the-match awards in successive TV fixtures at the start of the 2015/16 campaign but then broke a bone in his forearm in the win at Worcester in December and broke it again in his return to action at Sale in January, ending his season five months early.

The arm injury affected him again at the start of 2016/17 but he recovered to join the England training squad for the Six Nations as he finished the season strongly with Tigers.

Mike joined Tigers from Worcester Warriors after playing his way into the Championship Dream Team for 2014/15 on the way to a promotion play-off final win over Bristol.
