Tom Shepherd


As a Partner, my role is to help and advise those people involved in running the farming and agricultural businesses we insure. I started my association with NFU Mutual as a graduate trainee in 1999 and have worked all over the South East and Midlands. I have an active role in the local community as Group Secretary for the Harborough branch of the National Farmers Union. I am often kept busy by my horse riding and sailing teenagers. When I can, I run with the Kettering Town Harriers and volunteer at the Kettering Arts Centre.

Linzie Maycock, BSc (Hons) Cert CII


Since graduating from the Royal Agricultural College I have been a partner at Shepherd & Maycock for several years. As NFU Mutual estate insurance expert I spend time with both land agents and estate owners/managers advising them on their complex insurance needs ranging from estate property and land insurance to listed buildings and stately homes. Building long term relationships with both business owners and NFU Mutual Underwriters I spend the majority of my time out and about advising new and existing clients on their complex business needs. My specialisms are helping clients with their property portfolio, businesses in food/drink, hospitality, retail & wholesale and logistics sectors. On a personal level, having played low goal polo in the past I have retained my Hurlingham Polo Association membership and I take part in some of their social scenes. Alongside this in my spare time I enjoy spending time with my horse, walking my dog and socialising at Young Farmers. To find out how I can help your business please get in touch.

Zoe Taylor

Private Client Adviser

I have been with the agency now for five years. I moved to the world of insurance after 10 years in the motor trade industry. I pride myself in the service I offer in relation to all personal insurances, whether they be for new clients or existing ones. I also specialise in bespoke insurance policies which cover our high net worth clients. In my spare time, I enjoy going out for meals with my family or trying to keep fit in the gym. If I’m not doing either of these, I can normally be found running around after my son who certainly keeps me on my toes.
