Our Staff


We thought you might like to put some faces to names. At least that way you can be sure you're dealing with a human being*.

Our account executives have over 30 years' experience between them. What they don't know about professional insurance isn't worth knowing.

They each have a specific area of expertise too. Sounds special doesn't it? It is, and it means you get easy access to an expert who understands what you do, and who can advise on how best to tackle the risks associated with it. Handy, eh?

*To the best of our knowledge.
