How many years have you been in the insurance business?
When did you join Creative Risk?
I joined the business in 2010.
What did you do before?
I started working in insurance for Norwich Union in 1974 as a property underwriter. I then worked as an Account Executive for Bryan Worrall & Company Insurance Brokers followed by a period working as the Manager of the Cardiff Office of Opus Corporate Risk, where I was responsible for 20 staff and £2.5m income.
Which has been the most interesting project you’ve worked on while at Creative Risk?
Arranging the insurance programme for MII Engineering Ltd. during the period in late 2010 when an MBO was being planned from their Austrian parent company. The exercise had to be conducted in total secrecy because we could not disclose what was happening until the news became public.
I had also been involved when MII was originally established, back in 1984, up until the time that their owner sold the business in 2008. I am privileged to have been associated with one client over such an extended period.
What are your interests outside work?
I am an avid horseracing fan and own a racehorse. I also enjoy cooking, fine wine and good food.
