safeagent appoints Steve Ray as non-executive Director

9th July 2024

Steve Ray has been appointed as a non-executive director to the safeagent board.

Steve brings a wealth of experience to the board, having worked in and around the insurance market for the past 40 years, managing teams with strong growth ambitions while delivering to profit targets. He retired from Howden Insurance Brokers in 2023 after 17 years as an executive director. Prior to this, he was a partner at McCavitt Ray & Company.

Commenting on Steve’s appointment, safeagent’s chief executive Isobel Thomson, said:

“We are delighted that Steve has agreed to join the safeagent board, bringing with him many years of invaluable experience, knowledge and skills. With a new Labour government setting out its stall for the private rented sector, the next few months are set to be particularly busy. As an organisation we will be supporting our accredited firms as they navigate the new political climate with whatever new challenges that brings.”

Steve Ray, director of safeagent, said:

“I am delighted to join the safeagent board as a non-executive director. I admire safeagent’s total dedication to quality and service, supporting accredited agents to continue to offer a professional service. After many years in financial services, I hope to make a valuable contribution from the wings, and watch the business go from strength-to-strength.”
