Dave Herd, 10 years of Service

The County Group’s Operations Director Dave Herd took some time out of his busy schedule to talk to me about his time here at The County Group.

How long have you been here?

I’ve been here at The County Group now for 10yrs since the early years in 2005.

What made you join The County Group?

More like who made me join The County Group! I had worked at Swinton with our group CEO Dave Clapp and I was keen to take on the new challenge presented to me by him. It was also a great opportunity for me to develop my career in the Commercial Insurance sector.

What roles have you fulfilled in your time here?

I’m now in my third role at the business. I started off as the Business Development Manager before moving into the position of Sales Director. After a recent re-structure of the business I am now in the role of Group Operations Director.

How have you seen the company grow?

It’s been a real success story over the past 10 years I have been here. It has been achieved through nothing but teamwork something we can all be proud of.

What are you doing in your current role?

My main focus is to ensure we are producing quality, compliant business for our Insurer partners. Uniform the processes and procedures across the group and make sure we have the right people in the right place.

Where do you see the company in the next few years to come?

The Sky’s the limit! The UK’s leading independent broker would be nice… Who knows!

The County Group is one of the UK’s Top 50 Brokers providing a complete spectrum of personal and business insurance products as well as financial services such as: life insurance and income protection.
