Employee of the month Leon
At Invicta you always receive a pleasant, helpful and friendly service, but what do you know of the terrific people who make up the Invicta team? In this spot of our newsletter we will introduce you to one of the Invicta staff members who, on a daily basis, help to provide our customers with quality and courteous service. In this issue we say hello to Leon Price, our Commercial and Private Clients Manager.
With 23 years experience in the industry, Leon has a wealth of insurance knowledge. He started his insurance career back in 1994 as an office junior / trainee personal lines broker in Gillingham, Kent. He was quickly bitten by the insurance bug and soon realised it would be the profession for him. Progressing through various roles, including Personal Lines Manager at Blackmore Heath in Sittingbourne, he soon found a passion for solving complicated insurance requirements and so decided to focus his attention on commercial and private clients. In 2008 he moved to Woodstock Insurance Brokers in Maidstone where his line manager was Steve Gamage (the now MD of Invicta). Steve and Leon soon forged a great friendship together and quickly realised they shared the same visions and goals in wanting to offer insurance with integrity to the people of Kent and beyond. Leon is Cert CII qualified and is currently studying for his diploma. Leon loves mentoring employees to help them pass their insurance exams.
Leon’s ethos is to provide expert advice in plain English and to go the extra mile for his clients by offering exceptional customer service. Leon is always seen sporting his now infamous cheeky smile and has built his hard working team from his own positive mould and is immensely proud of their achievements. The commercial and private client team’s role is to provide exemplary service to our customers ensuring their businesses and beautiful homes are protected against every eventuality.
Leon considers himself as being a good old fashioned family man. He is married to the lovely Donna, who Leon calls his rock, and they have been together for almost 20 years. They have three amazing children Jade (17), Kailey (12) and Riley (6) and cherish time spent together.
Leon is a very sociable animal and can often be found spending time in his local village hostelry enjoying a cold pint of Guinness with his large circle of friends. Whilst Leon is a petrol head and loves all forms of motor sport, his real passion lies with his beloved football team Arsenal. He is a fourth generation supporter and can usually be spotted in the North Bank of the Emirates stadium cheering for the red army! Having had the privilege to meet several Arsenal players over the years including Charlie George, Perry Groves and Laurent Koscielny, he still holds out hope of meeting his ultimate playing hero Thierry Henry.
