Directors 

 
Karen Verschoor-Lowe 
I have more than 25 years experience within the Insurance Industry having spent 16 years with Cooperative Insurance in various roles including a Divisional Trainer, before joining Hedon Insurance in April 2006. Starting at the Hornsea Branch as an Insurance Advisor I progressed to opening our Hull office in the position of Manager. In 2013 I became a Director and now assist in overseeing all of our branches – whilst still enjoying helping clients on a daily basis. Away from the hustle and bustle of a busy office I love to relax by cooking and socialising with family and friends.

I joined Hedon Insurance in 1993 as an insurance advisor at the newly opened Hornsea Branch. I managed this branch until 1997 when I was appointed as a Director of the company. In 2006 I became the Managing Director. My mission is to keep Insurance on the high street and provide a first class personal service to all of our clients in the local area. In my spare time I love holidays and spending time with my family and our 2 dogs Cookie and Sika. 
 
Paul Hurford 
I have over thirty years experience in the insurance industry. I started my career as a personal lines assistant for an insurance broker in Skipton. After relocating to East Yorkshire in 2001 I joined Hedon Insurance’s Hedon branch, initially as an insurance advisor but very shortly after I became the Branch Manager .In 2013 I became a Director and stepped down from the managers role in 2016 to concentrate on my Directors role focussing on our companies procedures, customer care and compliance amongst other things. I still remain very much hands on as I really enjoy the interaction with our clients. Outside of work, I have many interests and hobbies including photography which is ironic as I myself am camera shy.

I have worked in personal lines insurance since 1989 where I began my career at Devonshire Wilson & Co before moving on to Kennett Insurance Brokers. In 2014 I joined Hedon Insurance and I am now the current manager of the Cottingham Branch. In May 2021 I became a Director of Hedon Insurance. I really enjoy the challenge of finding solutions to some of the more complicated insurance risks and providing quotations that beat our competitors. In my spare time, I enjoy walking, gym, camping and watching all types of sport such F1, football, rugby and horse racing. I have yet to be converted into a cricket or snooker fan.
