23rd February 2021

Tony Dixon is Head of Underwriting for Integra Insurance Solutions Ltd (Integra), an MGA offering standard household insurance products exclusively through insurance brokers and intermediaries.

In a short sentence, tell us what you do in your current role?

My role is a mixture of broker relations, ensuring Integra’s products are fit for purpose and driving the business to continually improve its pricing capability.

Did you choose the insurance profession, or did it choose you?

A bit of both really. An opportunistic newspaper advert for a pricing analyst interested me to apply for a role within Direct Line.

What is something that people are obsessed with, but you just don’t get?

Social Media and the latest mobile phone.

What is your biggest frustration with modern technology?

Technology is fantastic, the only frustration is trying to keep up with it as it changes so quickly.

What do you do when you’re not working?

Golf, cycling, walking are my main hobbies out of work.

What was the last book you read, or movie/box set you watched?

I’m currently reading Kate Rhodes ‘Burnt Island’. I love a good detective book.

Who’s your go-to band or artist when you can’t decide what music to listen to?

The Killers or Kaiser Chiefs.

Past or present, which five guests would you invite to your dream dinner party?

Outside of family – Seve Ballesteros, J.K.Rowling, the Obamas and Henry the VIII

What is on your bucket list?

Tour of Asia
