Jeremy Uzzell joined Cass-Stephens in July 2012 after 18 years working in the insurance industry having worked for several regional brokers specialising in a range of Construction, Manufacturing and Transportation Insurance clients. Jeremy values the local professional community and the networking opportunities that go with this.
I've worked in/with the construction sector since: 2005 – a progression from my original specialism in Transport & Logistics Insurance
The best thing about my job is: The people. A bit of a cliché but it’s true! The people are fantastic (most of the time) and making sure they are protected, as well as their businesses, is my main motivating factor.
The worst thing about my job is: Some of the politics & procedures within certain insurance companies are, frankly, ridiculous and that can really cause issues for both me as a broker and my clients.
The first album I ever bought was: I think it was Bad by Michael Jackson. I have moved on since then!
My favourite holiday was to: I loved my time in New Zealand, but for fear of offending my wife I’d have to say our honeymoon in Bali. There’s something pretty special about the place and the people.
My favourite bar/restaurant in Gloucestershire is: For a great meal and good fun I’d have to say the Daffodil. For a couple of pints it’s got to be the Jolly Brewmaster – a proper pub!
Make mine a: Pint of Peroni please!
In 2014... the last year has been great in both work and family life……so more of the same would be gratefully received!
My perfect Sunday would be: Being awoken a little later than usual by the kids, followed by circuit training, then a decent lunch with friends and family and some good wine. Oh and if Gloucester or Newcastle United are playing a win would be nice!
