Rural team expands with promotion and new hires

We’re continuing our journey to provide an even better service with a recent restructure that’s allowing us to develop our rural insurance offering.

After eight years at McClarrons, we’re excited to announce that our dedicated Farm Account Executive, Darren Felgate, is stepping up as Head of Farm at our Malton head office.

The new Head of Farm role has been created as McClarrons continues to grow and we look at more efficient ways to further enhance our service offering to our rural clients. As well as this, we welcome two new Account Executives to the team; Tom Lalor who will focus primarily on Equine insurance based in Leicestershire and David Matthews, who will focus primarily on Farm and Art & Private Clients insurance, based in Dorset.

The farm team now consists of 16 people to manage our ever-growing portfolio of agricultural, equine and business team services. With remote workers operating from Dorset, Skipton and Durham, we’ve taken these services nationwide, and our Head Office in Malton is now supported by two additional offices in Richmond and Whitby.

Speaking of his change of role, Darren spoke of his hopes not just for his future, but that of the business,

“I am very excited to be taking on the new role of Head of Farm at McClarrons. It will be a great challenge as both the team and company grow but one that I am very much looking forward to.”

“I have no doubt that throughout our ambitious growth plans, our team will continue to offer our clients the very best insurance advice and the high levels of service they have come to expect from us.”

At McClarrons, we’ve been specialising in farming, equine, estate and rural business since current Director Sean McClarron’s father founded the business in 1988.

The new structure and future plans reflect our firm focus on delivering incomparable service and exclusive rural products, as well as our offering in other areas including commercial and private insurance.
