Graham began his career in insurance over 30 years ago, working in the South West.
Like most who enter the industry, insurance was not his chosen profession, however his first employer Eagle Star, were insistent upon professional qualifications and since then he has been a strong advocate of professional training. Graham’s career progressed with Marsh McLennan where he sat on their UK Training and Development Committee. Graham has also served as President of the Local Insurance Institute which is very much geared to driving professional standards.
In 2004 Graham began discussions with Michael Pavey who was looking for a succession plan for the business. Graham was recruited to grow the commercial insurance portfolio for Pavey Group and went onto to become Managing Director of General Insurance. Through the support and commitment of Michael and all of the staff, Pavey Group have grown into a leading Insurance Broker in the South West and are now listed a Top 100 Broker in the UK.
In 2009 the Insurance Times named Pavey Group, Independent Regional Broker of the Year, an achievement Graham is extremely proud of.
Graham is married to Wendy, with one son Danny. Socially Graham enjoys most forms of sport, particularly football.
