Senior Commercial Underwriter
I left secondary school education age 16 and joined a small insurance broker. I remained there for 2 years before moving to Stormont Insurance Services which subsequently merged with Abbey Insurance some years later.
I was looking for a change in career as working in a broker call centre environment as this no longer fitted with my needs. I was undertaking other projects for Mr George Storey who asked me to consider underwriting. I gave it a go and haven’t looked back.
I managing a small team to run a motor trade scheme profitably on behalf of the carrier. I undertake all tasks but mainly now concentrate on overall performance of the account / rating / new business / training and broker development / credit control. Source markets for other commercial lines business.
Meeting with the brokers and providing a good service.
Hard work and persistence. Also being able to respond and adapt to change.
Myself. I try to treat others as I would want to be treated as a customer.
Sailing and the freedom it gives. It’s an escape from reality and I do enjoy the competition element
Outgoing, honest, dedicated.
