Meet the Team!

We're a new small business, so it's important to make sure we have a strong team of appropriately trained and qualified advisors in our Croydon office. So without further ado here's your introduction to the team that makes up Ruskin Square Ltd, aka the FSB Insurance Service!

 

 David Perry

I’m David and everything is my fault! I’ve had a long and varied career in Insurance and set up the original FSB Insurance Service, back in 1993. If I want to sound posh I say I’m from Surrey but, actually I’m from Croydon which is why I support Crystal Palace. I love music, play the guitar and still harbour ambitions to become an internationally famous rock superstar... Insurance is pretty exciting too though!

 

 Tim Lazenby

I’m Tim, a married man with two sons who hails from North Yorkshire. I do like to be beside the seaside and I do exactly what I’m told. I staggered into insurance broking 42 years ago and have been there ever since. My first client as an “International” Insurance Broker came from Blackburn, but most importantly provided a lot of the equipment for the first successful ascent of Everest.

 

 Katie Freemantle

I’m Katie and I am the Sales Manager at FSB Insurance Service. I have nearly 10 years’ experience in Commercial Insurance, so hopefully I know a thing or two. I’m a local Croydon lass, but like to holiday abroad as much as possible! My other hobbies consist of going to the theatre or music concerts, shopping (I always need a new handbag or pair of heels) and going to see the mighty Tottenham Hotspur win lots of trophies… 😉

 

 Anne Butler

I’m Anne, the Northern Area Development Manager at FSB Insurance Service, originally  from North Yorkshire, so appreciate good value as you would expect. I’ve been working with the FSB for over 25 years now, 21 of which has been looking after the Insurance requirements of Members. Anyone who knows me will tell you I love my holidays especially if there is an opportunity for my new hobby of Zip Wiring!

 Funke Akindileni

Hello, I’m Funke and I work as a commercial new business sales executive at FSB Insurance Service. As a mother of one, I love to squeeze in a bit of “me time”, with a regular manicure and pedicure to make me feel spectacular!!! If I’m lucky enough to get some extra time to myself, I turn to my inner detective and watch crime documentaries. I also enjoy going to church and spiritually enhancing myself to be the best version of me.

 Liam Airley

Hi everyone, I’m Liam and I am part of the commercial sales team at FSB Insurance Service. I love sports and am always up for trying a new one, from abseiling to zip lining I want to try them all. You may also catch me in the cinema because nothing beats a good movie, my all-time favourite being Goodfellas or Gran Torino. If I’m being honest even a really bad horror movie can hold a place in my heart… did anyone mention a Final Destination binge session? I love to cook but prefer to eat, so if any part time food tasting jobs come up don’t hesitate to call me!

 Russ

My name's Russ and I'm the mascot of Ruskin Square, or FSB Insurance Service. My hair's so big because it's full of Insurance facts! For example, did you know that the famous Lloyd's Insurance Market in London started in a little coffee shop, not far from its current location, where merchants would insure their ships travelling to the New World in the 1600s?
