Who is responsible for IIS?

Stephen Howard began his career in 1974 with Commercial Union, before moving to Cornhill in 1976 where he was appointed the youngest City Branch Manager.

In 1983 he moved into the broking world when he joined travel insurance specialists McLean Kent & Coomber (MKC) where he was director.

In 1990 he left MKC to set up his own specialist broker Milsom Howard Associates, which grew to become The Travel Protection Group, one of the largest travel insurance specialists in the UK.

In 2003 he joined Travel & General Insurance plc, and then in 2006 re-started Milsom Howard Limited, acquiring the businesses of Matthew Gerrard and TP Insurance Services.

In 2009 the decision was taken to merge the business with that of Infinity Insurance Solutions with the intention of growing the business in both the traditional and on-line markets.

What are IIS’s future plans?

We see good opportunities for growth in the market, particularly with the possible reversal of the “connected contract” exclusion by the Financial Conduct Authority, which will have a significant impact on the travel trade and, therefore, brokers. IIS will look to double its business size over the next three year period.
