More than 10,000 staff including 3,000 overseas workers are set to receive the bonus. ‘Their hard work and dedication has allowed Admiral to grow from a start-up to over 11,000 staff worldwide,’ said Mr Stevens. ‘Saying thank you to all Admiral staff in this way is the right thing to do and I’m so proud and fortunate to have worked with a such a special group of people. ‘And all of this while remaining a great place to work. ‘Thank you from myself and my wife to everyone at Admiral.’ Mr Stevens bows out from the top job almost 30 years after he co-founded the motor insurance giant – which also includes Confused.com – with wife Heather in 1991.
