A strong management team is in place to meet customers’ needs and to assist in the growth of our business. We work with insurers, brokers and managing agents throughout the UK to provide insurance reinstatement cost assessments (RCAs); thus tackling underinsurance head on.
Martyn Barrett BSc MRICS ACII FCILA FUEDI-ELAE
Spotting a gap in the market to establish BCH as a niche surveyor focusing on RCAs, Martyn left Cunningham Lindsey after 25 years as a practising loss adjuster and pre-loss valuer.
Martyn sits on the advisory panel to BCIS and contributed to the RICS Guidance Note on the preparation of RCAs.
Martyn continues to manage our 8 year long relationship with Aviva, as well as connections with other insurers, property brokers and property managing agents.
Lorna Harrington BA(Hons), MA, PG Dip ConsHistEnv (RICS)
Lorna is passionate about the BCH team having an ‘informed’ view when preparing an RCA.
This means fully understanding the relationship between all the stakeholders in an insurance contract; a skill she acquired through her time at Aon, Chubb, AIG and Cunningham Lindsey.
Lorna takes overall control of our relationships with key insurer partners such as Oak, RSA, Hiscox, AXA Art, Amlin, Aqua and DLG. She regularly presents to brokers and underwriters.
