Our team

Philip Cornish (Dip Agric.)

Senior Partner & Group Secretary
My 25 years of successful farming and business experience enables me to help our clients as they face many of the same challenges that I have overcome. My desire not just to advise clients, but to go "beyond the call of duty", gives me enormous pleasure and has always been my main goal as I service and manage the insurances of our many varied clients. With qualifications in all aspects of commercial and personal insurance products I am able to offer advice from the straightforward inquiry to complicated liability issues. My determined approach for the agency to ensure that all our clients claims are dealt with fairly and expeditiously often results in success for them where many other companies may have thrown in the towel much earlier. An enviable personal service with sound advice is the bed rock of our agency's strategy. expand text
