Tell us about your role
I carry out the lead service role for a pretty diverse group of clients through Ayrshire and beyond.

How long have you been with the firm?
I joined Blue Rock in 2012.

What was your background before that?

My journey in insurance broking began at the age of 16, fresh out of school, when I worked for a Yorkshire based Personal Lines broker, Apex Insurance, as an office junior while I gained my NVQ in Business Admin. After spending 2 years with Apex, I moved to Evans Charles Stevens, a commercial insurance broker also based in Yorkshire where I worked for 2 years in their commercial claims department.

I moved to Ayrshire in 1997 where I began work in the commercial department of Giles Insurance Brokers. I worked at Giles Insurance Brokers for 15 years performing various roles from Account Handler to Account Exec. It was during my time at Giles that I met and worked with John McQuaid and Tom Yorke.

In August 2012, I received a phone call from Tom Yorke and I started working with the guys a month later. The rest as they say, is history.

What are your special skills?
I’m well organised, self-motivated, methodical and thorough with a keen eye for detail.

What do you get up to outside of work?
At home I’m typical family man, spending time with my family and my 2 dogs. I’m a bit of an artist in my spare time, I love painting birds, wildlife and pet portraits. I also really enjoy spending time outdoors surrounded by nature and bird watching.

What is your guilty pleasure?
I do love to listen to a bit of Erasure every now and then.
