"Be the change you wish to see in the world..."

Terry, a graduate in Law and Modern Languages, joined LIM Group in 2008 as Head of Broker Relations. He came to us with a wealth of experience, and has enjoyed a career in sales and general management within both the IT and Insurance sectors.

Out of all his previous roles, Terry says assisting LIM's intermediaries in the creation of high quality, innovative solutions has given him the greatest satisfaction.

He is known around the office for speaking Latin and his phenomenal beard.
