David Bearman is the founder and CEO of Aventum Group, chairman of Rokstone Group, and CEO of Consilium.
David developed what is today Aventum Group as an 18-year-old in 1996. Since then he has forged a unique path forward, taking the business from a small commercial retail broker, to a global (re)insurance broking and underwriting business, on course to control $1bn GWP by 2023.
On this 25-year journey to date, David has been at the heart of both the London market broking and MGA scenes, founding successful brands in sectors of these markets where he sees opportunity.
Alongside his experience placing and underwriting reinsurance and insurance products, schemes and delegated authority arrangements, he has also established and developed many of these products. These include Property, Casualty, Motor Fleet, Plant & Equipment, Marine Cargo, Legal Expenses, Professional Indemnity, Latent Defects and Extended Warranty, which he has marketed across multiple trades and industries.
He has achieved and developed relationships with numerous global capacity providers, forming an extensive client network with a results-focused approach as a core business strategy.
Most of all though David is an entrepreneurial leader. He has built the Group from the ground up all without external investment, and is constantly seeking out new directions to expand the Group. He looks to bring in talent that shares his attitude to working, and finding new ways to break from traditional ways of providing insurance.
