“I have worked in property insurance for more than 15 years, the past five with Deacon. I feel really lucky to work for one of the most ethical companies in the UK, surrounded by people who genuinely enjoy what they do and take pride in their work.

“Insuring a block of flats is very different from placing any other types of insurance, not least because it’s so specialist.  I’m happy to help with any enquiries and I’ll guide you step-by-step to ensure you have the right level of cover for your property, at a competitive price.

“And when I’m not working to find the best and most appropriate level of cover for customers?  I love cycling and in the summer regularly clock up 15 miles after work around a block – or two!”

* Winner of both:  Broker Claims Team of the Year Award 2016, organised by Insurance Times Magazine; and Block Insurer of the Year at the Property Management Awards 2015/2016 organised by News on the Block.
