Matthew Price BSc. (Hons) Dip CII

Senior Agent

Matthew has been an Agent at Ross on Wye since 1997 and took over as Senior Agent in 2008 following the retirement of Philip Jenkins. He specialises in servicing larger agricultural, commercial and corporate clients as well as managing the agency team with his partner, Malcolm Watkins, to ensure delivery of the first class professional service our customers deserve. As an agency we have a considerable book of corporate commercial businesses including large scale food, property, motor trade and charity risks as well as traditional agricultural and horticultural clients who all value the professional personal service which we consistently deliver. The value our corporate clients attach to our high service levels is evidenced by the longevity of our relationships with them. Our top ten customers have all insured with this agency for in excess of ten years and often for much longer. Such long term relationships have allowed us to truly understand our customers' businesses and precisely what it is that they are looking for from their insurance provider.
