We pledge an empathetic, caring service to you. We will endeavour to let you continue with your life whilst we take care of your insurance needs.

Lauren Mcdonald

Originally from Pretoria Lauren moved to Cape Town in 2007. She worked for Riverport in both the sales and underwriting departments when arriving here and has recently joined us. She works in the engine of the business and her passion and drive is sure to see her succeed in whatever she tackles. She is registered as a rep for Personal lines and hopefully in the future will be registered for commercial also. By the way she also seems to have the "neatest" desk in Town.

Lameez Bassier

She has been with us for over 5 years starting in a junior clerical position. As time has gone by she has proved to be a loyal and conscientious worker and as a result now "heads up" our claims division. Like with any solid brokerage the claims division can be the most difficult and most important part of your operation, with her likeable persona and manner she is able to keep things in check. In conjunction with Trev we "attack" each claim with vigour in the hope that we will get the result our clients need. By the way she seems to have the most "colourful" desk in Town.

Audrey Pfister

She is the voice you hear when you phone in. With her warm and sympathetic nature she is able to help us all cope no matter how stressful things become. A vital cog in keeping our emotions in check.
