Martin Rothwell, Managing Partner of specialist travel insurance company Rothwell and Towler, is thrilled to be independently recognised as a 'business leader of the future', featuring in South West Business Insider's Top 42 under 42.

The list, which is compiled each year, lists 42 individuals under that age of 42 who are identified as business leaders of the future. The South West Business Insider list covers the entire south west region, from Bristol to Land's End.

Martin says, "I am incredibly proud to feature in the top 42 business leaders in the south west, it is a great accolade and will help demonstrate what sets us apart as a specialist in the travel insurance sector. I am constantly driven by getting the best deal for our customers, with nearly 40 years of expertise behind us, employing and developing a fantastic team and ensuring our systems and processes work at their optimum I am committed to providing the best products and services to our customers."

Martin is at the helm of the family run firm, which was set up by his father, Stewart Rothwell, in 1973. The company specialises in travel insurance and in particular, providing cover for people with pre-existing medical conditions. The company operates a number of travel insurance products, with World First Travel Insurance being the principal brand.

Relocating to Exeter in Devon in 2011, Martin still works alongside his Mum, Suzanne and brother, Tristan and nearly 30 staff in their new headquarters. Martin regularly puts in a 50+ hour week, as he oversees the company’s operations including underwriting, marketing, development, IT and media teams. His passion and commitment is a real recipe for success as the company has grown ten-fold in the last four years.
