Bridget Hailstones.

What is your role?
Claims Manager

How long have you been with the firm?
I joined Blue Rock in 2024.

What was your background before that?

My 20 odd years’ experience were obtained in South Africa where I am from. I began working in employee benefits moving from the call centre into consulting in a large financial services firm. Following this, I made the transition to Group Risk Insurance where I have spent most of my career with South Africa’s second largest group risk insurer. I worked in various roles, with my most recent position being where I was accountable for all claims’ teams as well as the client servicing team.

I recently moved to the UK where I now have the opportunity to gain experience within the Commercial Insurance industry.

What are your special skills?
Client focussed and building relationships. I am motivated and driven to succeed while ensuring that I add value to clients and the business.

What do you get up to outside of work?
I enjoy spending time with family and friends. Going for walks – especially along the coast and I am always up for some shopping!

What is your guilty pleasure?
To snuggle up with a good book (or movie) and a good glass of wine.

What is your favourite quote?
‘People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel’ Maya Angelou.
