David Lewis

Customer Service Adviser
Since joining NFU Mutual in 2008, every day has delivered a new challenge. This daily examination of my insurance industry experience has enhanced my skill set and it has enabled me to come up with practical solutions to our clients’ requirements. I have a background in retail management so I appreciate how important it is to get things right first time. I specialise in new business quotes for both personal and commercial insurance but I am always ready to deal with anything that is thrown at me. Away from work you’ll usually find me on the golf course developing my skills. expand text

Gill Durbin

Customer Service Adviser
I have over 30 years of insurance industry experience in the Southport area and my local knowledge frequently assists me in my role as insurance consultant. I am able to utilise all my know-how to produce quotations on our wide range of products with my particular expertise being high net-worth households. I enjoy my role in the Southport branch as it gives me a chance to work within the community but equally, when the opportunity arises, I love spending time with my family and having a coffee with friends. expand text

Claims Handler
I look at claims as the product delivery end of the business. Every claim is different, as are the expectations of our clients. It’s my job to deliver our commitment and make sure that solutions are tailored to each individual. As a man of faith I can be found most match days at Anfield watching Liverpool play football. expand text
