The West Midlands-based broker - which was launched in February 2013 - boasts some £800,000 premium.
And Gravity director Dale Collett, whose previous insurance experience encompasses stints at JLT, Giles and Johnston Park McAndrew (JPM), said: "Brett is a proven performer who I have worked with previously at Giles and JPM. We share the same energy, drive and way of working. Brett will spearhead our new business growth and be responsible for a sales team as we develop."
Proven Mr Collett told Insurance Age that Mr Congrave has already played his part in securing the business of a large independent wholesale food supplier.
And Mr Congrave, who has also worked for Giles, added: "The opportunity to join a new start-up in a senior role was appealing. Dale and I have a proven record of working together and are committed to the business growth goal of £10m GWP in 10 years. I am enjoying the freedom of helping to shape the identity of a broker with a genuine difference."
