Roche has been with BRP since 2019 and is said to have driven significant growth in its MGA of the Future and embedded digital insurance operations including Millennial Specialty Insurance and Westwood.
He has also spearheaded the expansion into reinsurance broking with Juniper Re.
Both executives will continue to report to BRP Group CEO Trevor Baldwin.
Roche’s previous achievements include co-founding Millennial Specialty Insurance and working as the vice-president of Strategy, Initiatives and Analytics at QBE Insurance, while Galbraith earlier worked at Stericycle and Cintas.
Baldwin said: “As we move forward with our strategic road map, we are deepening our focus on execution and strengthening our team dynamic to foster sustained high performance in this next phase of BRP’s growth.
“Dan and Jim have delivered exceptional results and made significant contributions to BRP’s growth and evolution since joining the firm.
“These newly created roles were architected to broaden their scope of responsibilities and enable them to maintain a sharper focus on day-to-day P&L [profit and loss] responsibility, operational excellence and acceleration of best practice sharing across the organisation.”
