The Senior Team

Adrian Shaw:

Adrian is the founder and CEO of First Allied Limited.  He founded the company in 2013 to offer the first online travel protection plan, to include online Kidnap & Ransom, for travellers, both corporate and private, visiting high risk regions worldwide. 

Adrian’s quest for excellence and entrepreneurship has been evident throughout his long career in the insurance industry. 

After launching his first company in 1982, he then moved overseas in 2000 to open a Private Health Insurance division within one of the largest International Financial Advisory companies in the World. In 2008 he joined a Middle East based broker and was instrumental in launching one of the first Private Medical Insurance schemes for local nationals working in Iraq and Kurdistan, underwritten by Lloyd’s in London, before setting up First Allied Limited.

Adrian prides himself on still overseeing the day to day running of the business to ensure it offers a first class service to customers as well as ensuring the long term future development of the company.
