Meet The Team
Michael Henderson – Director
Michael is the founder of Risk Box.
Having almost 20 years commercial insurance experience, working for both brokers and insurers of varying sizes, he has a comprehensive understanding of the insurance market.
A believer in providing truly independent advice, he established Risk Box to specifically look after the creative and technology industries. His opinion is that they are not always properly served, with misleading policies and schemes that seem to benefit the brokers and insurers more than the person insured.
Passionate about helping the industry thrive, Michael is also Honorary Secretary of the MPA, sits on the committee of Creative Pro-Manchester and is a partner at tech accelerator, Launch at the Landing. In addition, he has co-founded the Bulletproof Agency Network.
Finally, he continues to work as an ambassador for local community charity, Forever Manchester.
Away from work Michael loves nothing more than walking his dogs with a decent podcasts, playing football or listening to good quality music.

Sam joined the Risk Box team in February 2017, to help grow and develop the Company. He has a background away from insurance allowing different perspective and ideas.
His belief is that knowledge is the key to success and that you can never know enough. After qualifying with a level 3 Certificate in Accounting with AAT, he is now well on his way to finish level 4. His previous role in Business Rates meant that he also holds a level 3 certificate in Revenues and Welfare Benefits with the IRRV.
