Tim Craig - started out as a mining engineer in Lapland, however, Tim decided that working underground was not one for him and he moved on to become a Quantity Surveyor working with a private practice, whilst studying at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLAN).

Whilst Tim was working as a Quantity Surveyor in private practice, one of his clients (an Insurance Broker) asked him to assess a fire damaged property. It was whilst working on this case that Tim realised that there was a niche opportunity for a professional to act on behalf of the policy holder following an insured peril. Fifteen years on we now have 14 Insurance Brokers regularly recommending us to their clients.

Sam Hulme - worked for an Insurance Broker for 10 years before joining Tim Craig Independent Loss Assessor in 1996, Sam is responsible for the administration for the company.

Carl became a Company Director in 1997 and successfully sold the insurance brokerage in 2006, when he began working directly with Tim Craig as a Loss Assessor under the guidance of Tim Craig.
