Our team

Julian Bennett


It is important that our office runs smoothly and efficiently, and that we have well trained, happy staff in place to look after our customers. Visiting our clients face to face is an important and rewarding part of my job. This could mean helping our NFU farming members, reviewing a large commercial business, or visiting new clients to discuss quotations. Born in North Devon, I never tire of our lovely beaches, the coastline, and rolling hills. Perhaps this is why we are all so friendly.

Jonny May


My main responsibility is for larger commercial and personal accounts including farm. I am also the Group Secretary for NFU Torridge. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me or any member of the team or alternatively please pop in for a friendly face-to-face chat and we will be happy to help you.

Tamblyn Slade

Office Manager

My job is to make sure that the agency runs to a high standard to ensure we meet our customers' demands in between staff training and the various other tasks which come my way, no two days are the same. When I’m not working I can be found trying to keep my horses between myself and the floor.

I enjoy working for NFU Mutual and I believe in the quality of our products and look forward to visiting clients to discuss and cover their own particular needs. I was born on a Devon farm and on top of family life, I manage to find time to run an organic allotment, sing for a local a cappella choir and ride a motorcycle.
