Kim was one of the first additions to the Policyfast leadership team back in 2007 and her passion and knowledge within the business grew her reputation for 'getting things done'.

Kim now acts as Head of the Fleet, Truck & Special Types and leads strategy designed to be broker orientated, her strong emphasis that success in business depends entirely on people is her mantra; and that is reflected in the day to day customer care behaviours through her team to their brokers.

Her biggest achievement when not in work is throwing herself into being the 'coolest godmother' and one her husband reports may not be the same timeframe as her experiences in her business career!
