Having created Vista Insurance Brokers with my Co-Directors I am responsible for the development of organic and strategic growth across all areas of the business including strategic alliances within the professional community.

As well as managing a number of Corporate Client relationships, I am responsible with my Co-Director, Peter for overseeing the Property and Mergers & Acquisition practices at Vista, a dedicated team within our two offices, London and Manchester. We are able to deliver tailored insurance solutions to the banking and private equity sector.

Peter and myself have worked within the insurance industry for over 30 and 20 years respectively and have been working within the private equity and property sectors for over 15 years.

I enjoy the varied nature of working with many of my clients, I thrive on developing partnerships with them and supporting their growth, ultimately taking great delight as their businesses grow and become successful although when needed, being there through any difficult times.

Little known fact about me:
I once played semi-pro soccer in the West Midlands, I was a nifty winger and then an experienced full back!

Outside the office:
I enjoy spending time with my family and carrying my daughter’s sports bags! Running is my passion along with my mecca, ‘my fitness club’

Most likely to say:
“Let’s have 5 minutes” or “fit in body, fit in mind”

My Perfect day:
27th February 2011 Birmingham City 2 Arsenal 1, enough said!

My favourite saying or quote:
“if you don’t build your dream, someone else will hire you to help them build theirs” – Dhirubhai Ambank

What makes me get out of bed in the morning:
Not with standing my running trainers….. the opportunity of beginning the day with open eyes, creating opportunities with my long standing clients and embarking on new relationships.
