I’m responsible for making sure our clients needs are met, and a solution is provided and understood by the insurers! I have underwriting authority for the motor trade schemes we operate, which means I can design and tailor a solution there and then, instead of having to refer to insurers, who can then provide the premium.

For you, this means you experience a quick turnaround and a policy that is designed by someone who knows your business, and not by someone who sits in the office.

Like all members of the team, I constantly strive to maintain a high standard of customer service.

I’m responsible for looking after those rare one off vehicles that require special consideration, or simply when a client doesn’t want them on the motor trade policy.

They can be anything from high value or unusual cars to kit cars, or military vehicles to modified vehicles – even horse boxes!

In fact, the more unusual the vehicle the better.
