Our Team

Mark Cosgrove

Director/Insurance Adviser

Mark started out as an Insurance Broker in 2000. Young, enthusiastic, and driven by a desire for excellence Mark quickly built up an enviable knowledge base, and client base. The real secret to Mark‘s success though, is less about his own personal desire for excellence and more about wanting that excellence for others. Wanting what’s best for people means helping them achieve their aspirations; for themselves, their family, their business, and their lifestyle.

Mark has developed the Cosgroves business model to ensure the financial futures of his clients are best protected by insurance, and that their life aspirations can continue, even if it throws them a curve ball like ill health, an accident, or even death. The difference it makes when people have the right cover in place, when it‘s needed most – that’s the real game-changer. It provides the opportunity to embrace life’s challenges without a distracting financial burden; to focus on what matters most, which invariably is people.

Outside of work Mark packs in quality time with his family, including boating in the summer months, sideline supporter of his daughters‘ sports, and serious family-fun destination holidays. In between everything else, it’s hands-on in the lifestyle block, and a game of golf whenever the stars align (which isn’t often enough!).
