Director and Chartered Institute Practitioner
I’m married to Annie and have three offspring, Phil, Penny and Maddy. We have an eleven year old Golden retriever called Alfie.
I enjoy family and friends, going out with Alfie and the occasional trip to the cinema or theatre. I still stumble around aimlessly for five a side football (not far off walking football for some of us now!) and enjoy social doubles tennis at the weekends.
I qualified as a Chartered Insurance Practitioner in 1984.
I worked for a great insurer (General Accident) for fourteen years in many locations, ending up as Commercial Development Manager based in London.
Paul (who was then Commercial underwriting Manager of GA in Reading) and I bought the existing business and moved it to the town centre over 25 years ago and set out to provide local businesses with professional, but still personal help, in looking after their Commercial Insurance solutions. 25 years on, we have built a strong business, with a good reputation, with eight very experienced staff (all of whom have 25 years plus experience in the industry). The business continues to grow really by ‘word of mouth’.
