Welcome to NFU Mutual Hemel Hempstead agency where we pride ourselves on putting our customers at the forefront of everything we do. We have been based in Hemel Hempstead for over 12 years, and reside in a converted barn between Hemel Hempstead and Berkhamsted and you are welcome to come and visit us at any of our offices where our experienced team will be pleased to assist you. However, we recognise you have busy lives so we are happy to visit you at your home or business. This is all part of the personal approach you will experience when dealing with our team. By getting to know you, we are able to provide tailored advice to ensure you are adequately protected. We endeavor to give our clients peace of mind, and look to review your insurance requirements annually to ensure your cover continues to be relevant to your needs. We pride ourselves on our professional, friendly and personal approach and have a number of areas of expertise. These include the following;

1. Personal insurance: We offer a range of home insurance solutions such as building and contents cover and have a more tailored bespoke home insurance proposition for clients with higher value properties and high levels of contents (including antiques, art, jewellery and wider collectibles). In addition we also have a suite of motor products including private car, commercial vehicle and tractor.

2. Business insurance: We offer insurance and risk management advice for small, medium and larger corporate clients and our cover is extensive to meet our clients needs. This includes areas such as liability, property, business interruption, directors & officers' insurance and cyber. We cover most types of business but specialise in farming, food & drink, retail, wholesale, estates, hospitality and office-based businesses.

3. Financial planning: We have an experienced Financial Adviser who has worked in the industry for 25 years and our financial planning service enables our personal and business customers to plan for the future providing peace of mind to business partners and loved ones.

Due to our strong affinity with the countryside, we have recently entered into a partnership with the Chiltern Society as both organisations are closely connected with the good work which takes place in the local community. In recognition of the partnership, NFU Mutual Hemel Hempstead clients can benefit from a 25% saving when becoming Chiltern Society members. Discover why we’re the perfect partners here.

Senior Partner

I joined the Hemel Hempstead agency in 2018, in partnership with Ian Crickmay. Having worked in insurance/financial services for over 16 years I have always admired the strong values that NFU Mutual stand for, so when the opportunity came up I was delighted to join the business. We have an experienced team in Hemel Hempstead who are passionate about providing a personal service for our clients and we enjoy being actively engaged in the local community. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my wife and 2 boys, as well as doing charity work, trekking and when I get time competing in the odd triathlon!

I joined NFU Mutual's team here in Hemel Hempstead at the end of 2018, as a Customer Service Adviser, after completing my A Level exams in the summer. Having grown up riding horses and spending a lot of time on a farm, I am extremely enthusiastic to be working for an insurance company which has such close ties with the farming community as well as personal relationships with its clients. I look forward to working closely with our customers, providing outstanding customer service, as well as developing a career in the insurance industry.

Sales Associate

I joined the Hemel Hempstead team in October 2018 as a Sales Associate. My role is centred around the business insurance side of the company, creating, developing and maintaining relationships with companies. We are an insurance company who offer a very personal approach. Rather than being a generalist we specialise in a small number of sectors including wholesale, retail, food, drink and hospitality. Whilst we are an insurance company we aim to really get to know our customers and look at ways that we can help and mitigate risk, based on our expertise in the sector.

Growing up in the West Country, NFU Mutual had a big impact supporting my local community and now I want to make the same impact where I live, in Tring and the surrounding areas. From small artisan producers and boutique hoteliers, to large scale food and drink manufacturers and property professionals, I utilise my sector expertise and local knowledge to ensure NFU Mutual's commercial products meet your individual needs. This may be through our specialist commercial insurance policies, range of financial services or via our risk management solutions.
