Our team

Richard Buer

Richard Buer Dip Agric

Agent

Having run my own business based in East Hampshire for over 25 years, my clients appreciate my understanding of the challenges and the needs they face as a business, whether farming or non farming based. I feel I am well placed to use my extensive insurance knowledge, experience and strong local connections to give extra added value to clients who want more than just insurance cover. I personally deal with the larger commercial and domestic policies although I am happy to talk to any of our clients, even if I have to pass you to someone within the office better placed to deal with the matter. Along with our strong desire to give an excellent client experience we are committed to offering an unrivalled local, personal service from our office. Every member of our strong team of 10 people has a passion to do the best we can for each and every one of nearly 5000 customers that we deal with through our office. You become more than just another client with us and we will always deal with you fairly and respectfully.

Patrick Govier

Patrick Govier BA (Hons) DipCII

Partner/Agent

Over the last 10 years I have acquired a considerable understanding of the unique needs of rural clients, where every risk is different and a tick box approach is not suitable. Whilst I can advise on any of our products, I particularly specialise in insuring large houses and non farming risks. I pride myself in the long term client relationships that I have built up in our office and I aim to offer good advice and value for money products year after year. I believe that the personal touch offered by myself, Richard and the rest of the team cannot be beaten and is essential when you actually need to make a claim. I hold a degree from the University of Winchester and a Diploma with the Chartered Insurance Institute.

Kate Nash

Kate Nash

Accounts Manager & Renewals Co-ordinator

I have been with the Alton agency 10 years. I thoroughly enjoy collating renewals and I have a good eye for detail which helps when checking policy documents. I love dealing with the accounts and making sure all our clients remain insured. I enjoy taking part in quizzes to the point of being the geek with useless information. I love to read a good murder mystery book and I really enjoy cooking, I am known as the Quorn Queen! I also do a lot of walking.

Tori Dawn

Key Accounts Executive

I have been working with the Alton agency since April 2007. I enjoy the rural location and work as part of a well-functioning, friendly team. The parts of my job I enjoy the most are getting to know my clients and building good working relationships with them, as well as the varying responsibilities I deal with in my role as key accounts executive. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, dining out and taking part in motor cross. My husband and I also love travelling and experiencing other countries and cultures.

Stewart Palmer

Stewart Palmer

Office Manager

I have been working in the financial sector for over 20 years, building a strong knowledge of the industry in that time. Whilst working for the Alton agency over the last 5 years there have been many areas of the role which I find fulfilling. The main difference I have noticed is the variety of queries and questions we have to deal with on a daily basis. This makes it a challenging and enjoyable place to work. In my spare time I spend a lot of time cycling and walking in the nearby countryside. Another keen interest is sampling food and wine, especially local produce.

Customer Service Adviser

Since graduating from the University of Portsmouth in 2017 with a degree in Equine Science, I dabbled in wine retailing on a graduate management scheme before joining the Alton agency in 2018. I currently deal with new and existing motor, household and of course equine policies and hope to add to this list in the coming year. I am a self-confessed horse fanatic, a bit of a car lover and I enjoy going out to restaurants whenever I can. I also collect interesting designer footwear, you'll rarely see me in anything less than colourful!

Bronwyn Ford

Customer Service Adviser

I am one of the newest members of the Alton team, however I have been fortunate enough to be surrounded by colleagues who have years of experience in the insurance sector, which means I have quickly grasped the skills needed within my role. I can assist clients in both new and existing motor and home & lifestyle policies. I am also trained in the accounts department. I intend to work towards being trained in Bespoke and commercial in due time. In my spare time I enjoy listening to great music, spending time with family and friends and if food is a hobby, then count me in.
