“I’ve been aware of County’s great reputation for some time and I’m pleased to now be working with them. I’m also pleased to be working with my former colleague Tish Phillips. Tish & I worked together before joining County and it’s good to have a ‘buddy’ alongside me.”

He added: “Alongside my keen interest in farming I hope to bring a well-rounded perspective when it comes to underwriting specialist risks”
