Delta Spotlight - Alex Gordon

After spending some time in customer service, Alex moved into a direction more aligned with his passion for working with people to discover solutions. An opportunity was presented to move into insurance, and he started his career in 2019 in commercial motor claims. After meeting the underwriters, Alex realised this presented a far more interesting proposition, and he soon moved in this direction.

A born and bred Hamiltonian, Alex credits his father for passing on the petrolhead gene (Dad works in the motor industry), with the associated knowledge proving useful in his work as an underwriter.

Having worked closely with Delta’s Head of Commercial Motor Michael Hookham while at another company, Alex took the opportunity to continue working alongside Michael at Delta. Among the drawcards are a culture where people are valued and appreciated, while Alex also recognises the unique advantages offered by Delta Insurance’s niche approach to the market. This extends to helping develop cover for specialised fleets to manage their risks more effectively.

Measures for success for Alex include personal attention to brokers and customers, particularly when it comes to providing expert knowledge and developing solutions.; he points to Delta’s ‘integrated’ approach, where the specialist's portfolio delivers both broker relationships and technical underwriting.

Outside the office, Alex is an avid foodie and is often found sampling all the Auckland restaurant and café scene has to offer. A Manchester United fan, he enjoys Premier League football, and confesses to a liking for the American sports of baseball, basketball and their version of football, too.
