Boal & Co has appointed Danny Winrow as director, as the company continues to build on the legacy of chairman and founder Gary Boal.
A chartered accountant and qualified actuary, Danny has been instrumental in the company’s actuarial consultancy team since August 2014 having taken the lead with a number of clients.
His new role will see him working alongside Chief Executive Mark Kiernan and the other members of the management team to drive the company forward. ‘Danny’s appointment is the natural step for the company, coming as it does just three months after Gary’s death,’ Mark explained. ‘It is testament to our forethought and planning that the company founded two decades ago continues to flourish and grow under the existing management team, a team that is unrivalled both in quality and size locally.
‘Danny’s promotion will play a major part in helping us continue this growth, and I’m pleased that Danny has accepted this role and so will play a bigger part in the group as we further expand the Boal brand. In this respect we have a number of domestic and international projects on the go at the moment which will further cement our position as the Island’s largest pension provider.
‘Danny has proved a great asset since joining Boal & Co and he will bring all his expertise to the Board. He is taking the lead role within the actuarial side of the business, developing relationships with existing clients and bringing in new business.’
Having qualified as an accountant with Deloitte Isle of Man in 2008, Danny spent three years with a life insurer in the UK before returning to the Island to join Boal & Co. Educated at Onchan Primary School and St. Ninian’s High School, Danny graduated with 1st class honours in Mathematics and Computer Science from Liverpool University, and has post-graduate qualifications from Wolfson College and Kellogg College (both Oxford).
Danny said: ‘These are exciting times for Boal & Co, following our acquisition of Zurich Trust in September last year and the plans we have in the pipeline. I’m proud to be appointed director and to be given the responsibility of helping Mark and the team ensure that the company goes from strength to strength.’
