MediaRoo was founded in 2017 by media insurance expert, Andrew Leen.

Andrew has been an insurance broker for more than 20 years.

Since 2005, he has specialised as a senior media insurance consultant, where he has helped countless clients – individuals, companies, trade associations and affinity groups – get a better deal for themselves, their businesses, and their members.

As well as negotiating and placing insurance cover for individual businesses, Andrew is skilled in designing exclusive insurance schemes for membership organisations and media industry groups, lowering the cost of insurance for members, and increasing benefits for the organisation.

He has also helped his production clients get their projects completed, and has assisted the wider media community by designing and creating new insurance cover that he has brought to market.

Designed to be different

MediaRoo was designed to be different from other media insurance brokers.

Founded on the principle of putting you, the client, at the heart of everything that we do, we like to treat our clients in the same way that we would like to be treated ourselves – fairly, honestly and with the utmost care.

To make this a reality, Andrew offers open, reliable and expert media insurance broking but with a personal and consultative touch.

MediaRoo won’t just sell you a policy and move on – we value the relationship we build with you, and will continue to help you as your business develops.

MediaRoo is an Appointed Representative of Momentum Broker Solutions.

This doesn’t mean that we are tied to one insurer – actually, the opposite is true! Through Momentum, we have access to over 200 insurer markets, and Momentum’s diverse team provide us with invaluable back office support, such as broking, placement, accounting and compliance functions. This enables us to spend more time with you, our client.

MediaRoo is an independent media insurance broker, dedicated to supporting our clients and connecting them with the industry, whilst at the same time providing education, and top-class protection.

I first met Andrew over ten years ago when we were both presenting at a broadcast industry event, and I have used and recommended his services ever since.

People deal with people, and nowhere is this better exemplified than in the broadcast and media industry, which is largely populated by freelance operators and SME service businesses. These people prefer to develop a relationship with financial services people who they can trust and rely on, and in that context I have always been confident recommending Andrew to take care of their insurance requirements. I am delighted he has now struck out on his own and have no doubt he will continue to offer the same levels of expert service and advice.

We at Progressive Broadcast Hire have known Andrew for more than ten years. We have always found him to be reliable, honest and very straightforward to deal with.

When we did need to make a claim after a robbery, we found Andrew enormously supportive in what was a tremendously stressful time, so when we discovered that Andrew had started his own business, we did not hesitate to bring our business to him immediately.

I have known Andrew for over a decade now and he is by far and away the most competent and the most helpful insurance broker I have ever worked with. He has a great ability to convert insurance-speak into plain English and he always puts in a tremendous effort to find the best policies for my often unconventional requirements. The service he gives is highly personalised and very personable, and when it comes to making an insurance claim he is really supportive and dedicates himself to ensuring the best possible outcome.

Having previously met Andrew through LinkedIn, a new company I was incorporating was in need of liability and equipment insurance. Being quite early in my career, I wasn’t sure what to expect in terms of premiums and what I required. With Andrew’s incredibly trustworthy approach and years of experience, what seemed like a very daunting process was made stress-free and informative. I cannot recommend Andrew and MediaRoo enough!
