We are delighted to announce that Thomas Carroll has appointed Andrew Barker as Account Executive. Previously with Haven Insurance, a Milford Haven-based brokerage that was later acquired by Towergate, Andrew joins us with a diverse range of commercial insurance experience and local business knowledge.

Named UK Insurance Broker of the Year at the 2018 British Insurance Awards, we are now Pembrokeshire’s only Chartered independent insurance broker and relocated to a larger premises in Haverfordwest earlier this year.

Led by Branch Director Simon Lawrence, our Haverfordwest team advise both private individuals and businesses of all sizes across West Wales.

Andrew Barker, Account Executive at Thomas Carroll said:

“Thomas Carroll’s reputation as a leading independent broker was known to me and I have been impressed with the level of professionalism and commitment to helping clients.

I have worked with business owners across a variety of sectors, including farming, leisure and property over the years and look forward to sharing my experience.”

Simon Lawrence, Branch Director at Thomas Carroll Haverfordwest commented:

“Andrew’s appointment will complement our existing team of insurance experts who have helped the business flourish in our first five years in Pembrokeshire.

We always put clients first which has enabled us to build long, trusting relationships and encourage customers previously with Haven Insurance to consider Thomas Carroll for local and independent advice.

Andrew joins with a strong combination of local and industry knowledge that will provide additional value to our loyal client base.

We recently moved to a larger office in Haverfordwest with capacity to grow the team further. Investing in people and creating a platform for growth is part of our long-term plan to remain a strong, independent, Welsh broker.

We have exciting plans for the Pembrokeshire region over the next 10 years and would be interested to hear from individuals looking to further their career in financial planning, insurance and health & safety sectors.”

In addition to our Haverfordwest office, we have offices in Caerphilly, Swansea, Newport, Hereford and London.
