Debra began working at Northcott Beaton in 1992, just filling in for a couple of weeks as office manager. She made such an impact with her previous experience in insurance and a renowned eye for detail, that she was immediately offered a permanent job as office manager.
Now, as Senior Account Manager, she works closely with the directors, heads up a team dealing mainly with Commercial Insurance for new business, renewals and adjustments, plus training of colleagues. She loves the great team spirit at Northcott Beaton, especially the forward thinking atmosphere and innovation. No two days are ever the same, she says.
Job satisfaction for Debra is always going the extra mile for clients to give them the best possible service and receiving appreciation in return.
Away from work, Debra is a tennis fanatic. She dreamed of becoming a professional player but says her backhand let her down. She also played football in her teens and might just have become a PE teacher if the world of insurance hadn’t come knocking. Her ideal dinner guest would be André Agassi, on the basis that he’s easy on the eye and might just give her a tennis coaching session.
Debra loves to travel, favourite places being Port Soller in Mallorca and Canada. She loves to spend time with her partner John, their families and friends.
