Sean Quinn

Sean Quinn

Co-Founder & Director

Sean Quinn is a Co-Founder and a Company Director. BQI was founded in 2006 on a desire to put the customer first at every opportunity and provide an unrivalled service. Sean started his career in insurance in his late teens and there is not much he has not seen. Starting out as a commercial underwriter when transactions were still recorded in triplicate on carbon paper, Sean quickly progressed through the ranks of a major UK insurer. An invitation then arose to join the broking world and this developed into a number of exciting and challenging roles ultimately leading to Sean and Andrew forming BQI.

Before forming BQI, Andrew started his insurance career at a motor insurance broker, then moved into Commercial Sales. Following his time working for a leading Reinsurance Broker, he realised his passion was dealing with the cut & thrust of direct UK Commercial Insurance.
