During his time at TGIO Chris was awarded the State Employee of the Year. Following the sale of TGIO Insurance, Chris stepped up to an Account Executive role with another local broker before moving into a Senior Account Executive/Team Leader role with OAMPS Insurance Brokers in 2004.

Chris’ approach to insurance is based around developing strong relationships with clients through understanding each client’s own unique situation and through the implementation of strategic advice, tailoring an insurance and risk management programme to ensure his clients are placed in a position to be adequately protected to survive any insurable event.
“Just a short note on the exemplary service I have been receiving from your employee Chris C . What a breath of fresh air – renewals received well ahead of due date, research done and ready for approval, prompt efficient follow up , the superlatives go on and on!! I will be recommending him to whoever I can – just outstanding. If you had been considering a pay increase just go ahead and do it – you can’t afford to have him poached by any other broker. Chris would have to be “the best” in the general insurance world I have had to deal with in the past 40 years of business and he had to earn my respect before I considered putting that in writing”.
