For over 10 years I have worked in the insurance industry at the forefront for commercial businesses to review, advise and create the right insurance package for their business needs. I have worked with all sectors from sole traders to multinational operations.
Insurance is a necessity for businesses in this ever-changing world and I pride myself on providing a personalised service to all my customers, ensuring they have a point of contact that can be reached at whatever time they need as not all companies work 9-5 and incidents also don’t know these are the hours to occur in.
As Director, ensuring that our customers are more than just a policy number is my top priority. Through our sister companies and regular networking, I use my knowledge of local businesses to ensure you are fully supported whatever your needs may be.
Freight and trucking have always been part of my life, my great grandfather started Whittles Removal in Bolton over 120 years ago. This company was then run by my grandfather and then my father. My dad expanded the business to become Whittle International Freight, “road services to Arabia”, sending British Drivers throughout the Arabian Peninsula and even as far as Afghanistan in the late 1970s.
I joined the business after working for Freight Forwarding Companies in Belgium, Rotterdam, Hong Kong and China and ran the Iberian Department. After a few years, I then moved into the Removal Department and ran Brewer & Turnbull a franchised Removals Company for 10 years.
Since leaving the family businesses I have developed a number of my own businesses within the insurance sector, Safe and Insured is a specialty Insurance Company bringing my career full circle incorporating both my experience in the Freight and Insurance Industries.
Customer service, organisation and problem-solving are my biggest strengths and I aim to give excellent customer service to each client by providing a customized service that is tailored to them.
I have had a varied career which has encompassed customer service, leadership, and quality assessment. The skills I have developed have provided me with a deep understanding of the customer experience and effective communication techniques to handle all situations.
I have enjoyed my time learning the ins and outs of the insurance world and plan to build a successful future within the industry.
