I’ve been working in insurance for over 30 years, as Broker, Underwriter, Consultant and now in a strategic role, all with an emphasis on building trusted relationships with clients and business stakeholders, both internally and externally.
I started my career as a clerk in a local insurance office but over the past 25 years I’ve worked in the London, North East and North West markets, primarily looking after Private Clients from all over the UK and Europe.
In 2017, recognising my organisational skills and attention to detail; I was also appointed as Operations Manager, supporting the Vista Board in their next stage of growth. In July 2019, I became Head of Operations at Vista – working with the board to deliver effective and efficient business practices, including infrastructure, training, procedures, regulation and compliance. I am also involved in the strategic direction of the business.

My Perfect Day:

Most likely to say:
There’s not enough hours in a day (or at least, there would be if I didn’t fill it with so much)!
My favourite saying:
