He also works closely with law enforcement voluntarily, leading and managing committees in tackling fraud, cyber and severe crime.
Glen Donaldson, the director – specialist services at QuestGates, said Gow’s appointment was made in reaction to an increasing volume of cases involving some of the most common ransomware variants – including Sodinokibi, Ryuk, and Netwalker, as well as the recent LockFile and Microsoft Exchange attacks.
“We recognised the need to deepen our bench of experts and are delighted to welcome Will on board to lead our cyber and economic lines team, grow their abilities, and develop our service to stay not just on top of current trends, but be one step ahead,” said Donaldson.

“This is key in the field of cyber, which is ever-changing, disruptive and compels equally innovative solutions,” said Gow. “Threat actors are more tenacious now than ever and aren’t slowing down anytime soon. I’m excited to explore how the existing specialized capabilities at QuestGates can be further enhanced for incident reaction through to asset recovery, building tailored client-centric claims approach combined with a full-service financial lines market offering.”
