HI Commercial Ltd
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.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.
I joined Hedon Insurance in 2017 having worked in the insurance sector for over 5 years. My previous positions were at Liverpool Victoria and Cornish Mutual Insurance. I have three young children and in my spare time I enjoy snowboarding, rugby league & I am also a keen amateur photographer.
I joined Hedon Insurance in April 2011 as an Insurance Adviser before becoming manager of the Hornsea office a couple of years later and now I am the manager of the Hedon branch. Prior to Hedon Insurance I worked in the banking sector as, amongst other things, a financial adviser and mortgage and protection adviser so I have worked in and around insurance for many years. Away from the office I enjoy playing and watching football and currently play (badly!) for Hornsea Town Veterans. I follow Hartlepool United up and down the country and drag my son along to suffer with me!
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.

Away from the hustle and bustle of a busy office I love to relax by cooking and socialising with family and friends.

In my spare time I love holidays and spending time with my family and our 2 dogs Cookie and Sika.

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.

Hello, I’m Mike.
I joined Hedon Insurance Hull team in August 2021 after working up in Newcastle for a large supermarket’s insurance and banking section.
Initially, I was the friendly voice in their call centre dealing with all aspects of motor insurance before I opted for a quieter, administrative role in their back office.
In my spare time (when I’m not in the pub) I enjoy spending time with my family which normally involves them spending my wages, which reminds me… when do we get paid again?..
I have worked in Financial Services for over 25 years starting as a Junior Clerk at Co Operative Insurance. After undertaking the relevant CII qualifications I moved into sales and became a Mortgage & Protection advisor for various establishments for several years before returning to Personal Lines Insurance in 2008 based in the Private Clients/High Net Worth team at Jelf Insurance Partnership. During a career break I joined Age UK as a shop manager for 5 years and enjoyed the different challenges it brought and the lovely people I met.
I do find the insurance world an interesting place to be and look forward to progressing my career with Hedon Insurance. I very much enjoy meeting and looking after my clients and Hedon is the right place to do so as I love our presence on the high street and the ‘face to face’ relationship we can offer the majority of our clients. At Hedon we have the flexibility to look after our clients as individuals and can personalise their insurance requirements to suit whilst offering cover from an extensive range of insurers.
In my spare time, when I have it.. my pug doggie is my world so usually evolves around him! Socialising and entertaining friends always good but I’m afraid to say I don’t do much in the way of keeping fit and active (although I always have good intentions)
I have previously worked in insurance from 2009 at NFU Mutual in York, before moving to Hull and Henderson Insurance. I was an Operations Manager for a local plumbing and heating company before being made redundant when Covid first hit in 2020. I joined Hedon Insurance in April 2021, and already feel like I’ve been part of the team for years!
My spare time is consumed by my little boy and football, juggling managing and playing for the Easington Utd Academy and getting up to Edinburgh to watch my team, Hearts, when I can..
