J3 strengthens team with strategic senior hire
Structural warranty and property finance advisory J3 has appointed Timothy Woodgate as senior advisor.
This follows the recent appointment of ex-Knight Frank director Peter MacAllan who was recruited to head up J3’s debt advisory department.
In his role, Tim will lead efforts to provide comprehensive insurance solutions for volume house builders and housing associations throughout the UK. Tim brings a wealth of experience to the team, having previously worked at Premier Guarantee. He has an impressive 25-year broking career spanning across New York, Singapore and various Asian hubs.
Since its launch in 2021, J3 has sourced and placed structural warranties for an impressive portfolio of more than 2,800 units across the UK’s Build-to-Rent (BTR) and Purpose-Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) projects.
Tim’s recruitment reflects J3’s commitment to bolstering and expanding its services to meet the needs of volume house builders and social housing associations. J3’s distinctive partnership approach involves early-stage engagement to help mitigate development risks and offers liaison services to ensure the successful delivery of final certificates at practical completion.
Commenting on his new role, Timothy Woodgate said: “J3 stood out as the most impressive brokerage during my time at Premier Guarantee, and their remarkable growth is a testament to their excellence. I’m delighted to join the team and be part of that success story going forward.”
Jack Bristow, managing director at J3 Advisory, added: “Tim’s diverse experience injects a fresh perspective into J3. He is an incredibly well-regarded professional amongst the insurance broking community and his appointment represents a significant win for our organisation. His insurer insights coupled with his commercial acumen will undoubtedly prove immensely valuable to both J3 and our clients.”
