Dominic Lion

Advisory Committee Member

Dominic works for the insurance broking and risk management company Gallagher, where he has been since 2015 – firstly as part of the UK Construction team, before more recently switching his focus to Real Estate. Alongside managing a portfolio of his own clients, Dominic heads up the new business development arm of the Real Estate business, looking at how he can design bespoke solutions to meet the needs of his clients, and in doing so add value to their business. Prior to joining Gallagher, Dominic started his career at Zurich Insurance Company as an underwriter.


Dominic has been actively involved in the timber sector since his move to Gallagher in 2015, designing and placing the insurance programmes for a number of the UK’s largest engineered timber buildings, as well as working alongside some of the UK’s biggest house builders who work with timber. His focus is primarily on the improving the lines of communication between the timber industry and the insurance sector, and has arranged and run a number of seminars and roundtables to try and debunk a number of the myths that exist within the insurance sector in relation to timber, as well as trying to educate the timber sector as to insurers’ chief concerns, and how to present a new project in the proper light and to its full merit.
