Michael previously worked for a global media business and has a Business Management degree from Cardiff University.

In addition to the new members of staff Prospect have also taken more office space on our 10th floor at St. Clare House.  Managing Director Jamie Webb said “to future guard us against our growth we decided to expand our footprint on the 10th floor.  We now have more than enough space to continue to grow into for the foreseeable future.”

Prospect have also invested in a drone technology start-up company called Verifly. The company was founded by Entrepreneur Jay Bregman who founded Hailo in 2010 with three London cabbies. Verifly partners with all major stakeholders in the UAV / Drone community to build simple, trusted verification and control systems for all drones.   Prospect launched UAV Protect last year who are a leading provider of commercial insurance to operators and manufacturers worldwide and Webb commented that “this partnership is a perfect match with our experience in the insurance and regulation side matched with Verifly’s expertise on the technological side.  It is in all our interests to further the safe usage of these remarkable new pieces of technology.”
