As a Director and Joint CEO of Whitbread Insurance Brokers, Claire currently leads the Marketing Communications Department, acting as custodian and champion of the Whitbread brand and philosophy.
Claire's focus is on evolving the Whitbread brand, articulating what we stand for, ensuring adaption to a rapidly changing market and finding new ways to connect with clients.

Claire has a Bachelor of Education Primary and her Tier 1 Compliance Insurance Broking qualification.
