Robert is chairman of Lumley Jacobs. A member of the Lumley Insurance Group, he is an entrepreneur and insurance professional who pioneered rent and legal protection, tenant referencing and legal expenses in the UK.
Robert is a staunch advocate of the saying: “there’s no such thing as can’t,” in fact, there is nothing he likes more than proving naysayers wrong by finding answers to seemingly intractable problems.
If he’s not in England he can usually be run to ground in Meribel, where he escapes, when workload allows, to indulge in another of his passions, skiing.
Hugo has been managing director of Lumley Jacobs since 2004. He has previously worked in investment banking and investment management. He left financial services to take the entrepreneurial route and started up a manufacturing business specialising in laser non-contact replication. The business created a range of products and sculptures for museums, hotels and the interior design market. Having sold that business in 2003, Robert approached Hugo to help turn his vision into reality as he particularly wanted someone dynamic with no preconceptions about the insurance market.
He is an avid sportsman and would-be adventurer with a penchant for real tennis and shooting. He believes that we spend far too much time working, so he’s a strong proponent of the maxim that work should be good fun as well as rewarding.
