Meet The Team

Steve McNamee

Steve founded Exchange Street in 2002 having built up a wealth of experience in both the general insurance and recruitment professions. He started his insurance career as a trainee with NEM Insurance in 1986 before moving into sales roles with Guardian Royal Exchange and Independent Insurance. In 1997 he decided to put his technical insurance skills and in-depth knowledge of the key players in the insurance market to good use by moving into insurance recruitment. Over the past decade he has helped many companies to strengthen and develop their teams, and is also proud to have played a part in helping numerous insurance professionals to develop their own careers. Steve is a past President of the Insurance Institute of Manchester and is a Chartered Insurance Practitioner.

Steve recruits for a range of opportunities including underwriting jobs, broking jobs and account executive jobs.

Within this period he also managed a team of consultants dealing with all Insurance vacancies in the North of England and successfully recruited for a range of clients across the general insurance sector in regional markets.

Having graduated with honours in 1995, Nik immediately began his career as a commercial underwriter with a leading global insurer and subsequently developed his career to Development Underwriter dealing with commercial combined cases. He worked within the North West Insurance market for 9 years and gained an excellent network of contacts and clients.

During this time, he built a strong understanding and knowledge of the market which has proved to be a great advantage since working in recruitment.
