Personal lines director John Watson has retired from TH March following 41-years industry experience and 35-years service to TH March.

Throughout his career at TH March Watson has worked with the jewellery trade and negotiated with selected insurers.

He was part of the development of March Insurance Solutions and THM’s branded products for the retail trade’s customers. The trade customers have since become core products and strengthened THM’s bond with the trade by ensuring their customers keep spending in their shops.


His role has developed to such an extent over the years that his position requires two members of Watson’s team (who between them boast 36 years of insurance experience) to take over: Lynne Arundel as personal lines operations manager and Andrew Wear as personal lines business Development Manager.

Reflecting on Watson’s long career, managing direcetor, Neil McFarlane said: “In April it was my absolute pleasure to recognise the loyalty and achievements of my colleague and very good friend John Watson as he celebrated 35 years with THM. He joined us at the tender age of 23 and in his acceptance letter stated that he ‘…looked forward to a long and happy career with TH March,” he added.
