Carol Puttock

Claims Manager

Carol joined us in 2011 having spent 30 years working as a Senior Claims Controller with Allianz, assessing all types of insurance claims. She applies her considerable experience to managing our claims handling service. In the event of a claim she will either advise who to contact, or in cases where we have delegated authority, she will manage the claim process for the customer. Her interests include reading and walking but recently she has developed a predisposition for retail therapy, the shops of Guildford proving too much of a temptation.
