Andy Webb

28th April 2020

This month we caught up with Andy Webb, Business Account Manager at Sabre Insurance, a new facility to the suite of products and facilities we can provide access to, but a long-standing brand, with a rich 38 years’ history in the UK broker marketplace.

In a short sentence, tell us what you do in your current role? 

Select, visit, appoint and look after Sabre’s brokers.

Did you choose the insurance profession or did it choose you? 

It chose me – I was unemployed for six months after leaving school back in 1979 then my auntie got me an interview with Eagle Star in Sutton – the rest is history!

What is something that people are obsessed with but you just don’t get? 

Facebook and Instagram – really!!

What is your biggest frustration with modern technology? 

Everything has to be done now – remember the days of ‘it’s in the post’.

What do you do when you’re not working? 

Fishing or golfing – the latter trying to play!

What was the last book you read or movie/box set you watched? 

Really sad in the current climate – the Chernobyl disaster series!

Who’s your go-to band or artist when you can’t decide what music to listen to? 

Kasabian and Kings of Leon.

Past or present, which five guests would you invite to your dream dinner party? 

  1. Sir Alex Ferguson
  2. Tommy Cooper
  3. Spike Milligan
  4. John Cleese
  5. George Best

What is on your bucket list? 

Kayaking in Thailand and Vietnam and learning to play the guitar.

Finally, why should brokers consider using Sabre? 

Trading since 1983, Sabre have an established reputation as a small but successful motor insurer with now 98% quotability, accepting risks brokers may struggle to place.
