Ben Gainsford

Senior Underwriter & Team Leader Central/Southern Region

Ben joined Rosser in July 2018 as our Canterbury Business Development Manager and a Senior Underwriter. In October 2021 Ben relinquished the BDM portion of his role and took on responsibility of Team Leader of Rosser’s Central & Southern underwriting team.

His proven commercial underwriting experience, insurance industry technical expertise and relationship-building skills make him the perfect fit to look after the underwriting needs of our lower North Island and Mainland brokers.

Ben’s insurance career started with State, before moving to QBE in Christchurch where he remained, apart from a 2-year stint with QBE’s European Operations in London, until joining Rosser.

Living on a small lifestyle property with his partner and daughter, many of Ben’s non-work hours are spent looking after pets and renovating their farmhouse, some of which dates back to 1890. In his spare time (whenever that is) he enjoys fishing, touch rugby and watching cricket and rugby league.
