Frontline's Story

Paul Myers started Frontline in Durban in 2001. Until 2005, through tough times, he established a foundation for the organisation; engaging the New National Assurance Company as a Principal, securing valued staff members and signing up business enough to keep his dream alive.

James Bonner joined Paul in 2005, and the story from then explains Frontline's unique focus on the diverse needs of its clients. It was, after all, the melding of their two very different approaches around a common vision, that built Frontline into the consistently profitable, ever-growing business it is today.

In 2005, James set up an operations base and head office in Port Elizabeth and then went on to establish Frontline's presence across South Africa. The next two years was a time of many strange and wonderful experiences for Paul and James: meetings with extraordinary people in unusual places and low-budget (and very interesting) travel and accommodation arrangements; but these efforts paid off. From December 2007 to February 2008, Paul and James wrote their entire budget for the year.

2008 had been planned as a consolidation year. Instead Frontline was faced with the enormous challenge of rapid growth. Abie Human joined to take Frontline to the Western Cape and the East London branch was opened soon after, followed in quick succession by Johannesburg and the Freestate.

The journey was – at times – arduous. Frontline fought for recognition in a market saturated with new underwriting managers. To make an impact, in these circumstances, Frontline hired only well-qualified, experienced staff. Sometimes, the team had to go without to make it happen. Sometimes, new appointments were made based on promises alone.

In harnessing divergent talents to a shared dream, Frontline has assembled a team of truly remarkable, committed people. The same appreciation of diversity is the basis for their continued success.
