Established in 2011, Principal Insurance are a fast-growing specialist insurance group offering an extensive range of motorcycle, car, van, home and business policies.
Based in Sale, Manchester, we were founded by Managing Director Dave Bowcock.
Dave is a highly experienced insurance industry executive who spent the previous 14 years working within the specialist motorcycle insurance UK sector.
Having secured extensive boardroom experience, Dave decided it was time to invest his expertise in a new service-led business. A business that offered a fresh approach to insurance: Principal.
In 2014, having successfully established the business and looking to maintain a strong growth pattern – our premium income had by then soared to £3.3m – we recruited highly respected North West businessman Damian Keeling as Chairman.
Experienced at the highest level of the insurance broking industry, prior to joining Principal Insurance Damian’s industry achievements included the acquisition, expansion and sale of a high value performance car insurance business. He also built a niche motorcycle insurance specialist into one of the UK’s biggest brokers.
Dave and Damian lead a committed and talented team, both at our headquarters in Manchester and the offices in Dublin and Lancaster.
We now serve over 40,000 policyholders, employ over 130 staff and arrange policies worth over £10m annually.

Many thanks to Jamie who just helped me to make a quick amendment to my policy. It was pain free and surprisingly cheap!
