Tom Machin Principal : Customer Analytics, Data & Research Tom Machin

Tom joins Ampersand as the Principal Consultant for Customer Analytics, Data and Research in the Melbourne office. He brings 4 years of recruitment experience gained primarily on the Zurich reinsurance market, but also across other reinsurance hubs such as Bermuda, London and wider continental Europe.


Having previously worked for a small boutique firm operating in an incredibly niche area, Tom has real experience in embedding himself within local markets and becoming a trusted and respected confidant and advisor to both sides of the recruitment equation. After 3 years of success fresh from university with his previous company, Tom was given the opportunity to lead the new London office – but ultimately decided to make the jump into Melbourne not long into his tenure in London. His previous exposure to C-Suite clients and candidates across the entire spectrum of reinsurance including reinsurers, insurers, consultancies and software providers has left him well positioned to drive forward Ampersand’s already burgeoning offering of customer analytics, data and research recruitment to their existing partners and beyond.


With a proven track record of high performance and success in building long term relationships with both clients and candidates alike across all levels of seniority in a highly technical vertical, Tom will bring a consultative and considered approach to building the next facet of the Ampersand brand.
