I started working in the insurance industry in 2004, specialising in motor for diplomats in London. Four years later, I left to focus on theological studies, working as a youth worker and then as a ministry director for a church in Seattle, USA. When returning to the UK, I had an opportunity to work for the late Andrew Marchington at Highworth Insurance. I joined the firm as a sales advisor when it was around ten staff. Within three years, I was Head of Operations with a staff team of over 30 people. In 2019 I was fortunate to have an opportunity to co-start Stanhope, to build a broker synonymous with trust, which we're passionate about. I love being with Donna, my wife, and four kids when not working, and cramming in the odd row or run when I can.
