Account Handler - Commercial

Paul has worked in the insurance industry since the early 1980s, when he trained as a Liability and Motor Fleet underwriter at Phoenix Assurance in Leicester, before moving to R K Harrison in Bedford as an insurance broker.

After a few exciting years with a growing company, Paul and a fellow R K Harrison director set up their own commercial insurance broking business in Bedford. Starting in 1990, with an empty filing cabinet, they achieved a multi-million-pound premium income and a very profitable and well-respected business, which was sold to the remaining director in 2006.

After a few years away from his desk, Paul joined Sutcliffe Insurance Brokers in 2015 and, following their acquisition, by Alan Boswell Group in 2017 became the Office Manager for Boston & Grimsby.

When not spending time outside of work with his wife and four children, Paul is a keen trumpet player with a local big band and various small jazz groups. He also enjoys walking, swimming, tennis and the very occasional game of golf.
