With close to 4 decades of experience in the motor insurance sector, Mike Brockman is truly one of the world’s experts in motor insurance.

Having spent several years as a Pricing Actuary, Mike co-founded EMB in 1993, an actuarial consultancy, that grew to having 11 offices around the world with more than 300 staff. Mike was instrumental in developing new pricing techniques and their applications to risk and demand modelling within the actuarial profession world-wide.
