Julian Bennett


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