Back in 1973 Charles Scott came to work for Harnett and Richardson of Bermuda, a company that was soon to become Macbeth Scott & Co. He had previously worked as a management trainee for General Accident, all a far cry from his first job at Lipton’s in Kendal for which he was paid £7 a week! In his spare time, Charles enjoys sailing, rowing, squash, travel and rugby. It was his love of rugby and travel which bizarrely led to him gaining an international cap whilst playing at full back for the Barbados rugby team at the age of 39. If you want to know the full story, you’ll have to ask him! Charles lists “The 39 Steps” as his favourite film and “The Avengers” (the original version) as his favourite TV show. He would love to have dinner with Patrick McGoohan of “The Prisoner” fame.


Stef joined Macbeth Scott in February 2000, coming from a background of liability claims handling at Provincial Insurance & AXA in Kendal & Bolton, then AIG in Manchester.  Dealing primarily with commercial insurance, Stef ‘celebrates’ 20 years in the industry in 2014 and remembers his first day at Provincial Insurance as a Motor Claims Clerk like it was yesterday!  Stef enjoys spending time with his family, and in whatever spare time he has can be seen playing guitar in local bands.


Duncan Macbeth was a founding director of Macbeth Scott & Co way back in 1972, having previously worked as an Agency Inspector for Royal and Provincial. He officially retired in 2008, but made a “come back” to lend his experience in training & mentoring our younger staff. A hard taskmaster in setting tests and assessments for them to carry out, demonstrates that their Continuous Professional Development makes them “fit for purpose” in our Industry.

Now having lots of spare time, means Duncan can pursue his desire for travel whether for recreation or to watch Rugby and F1.


Chris has been working here as our accounts man since 2005 after 22 years insurance experience working for Royal London in his hometown of Warrington. As you would expect from a Warringtonian, Chris is an avid follower of rugby league and holds a season ticket for Warrington Wolves. He is also a keen Crystal Palace fan. As a younger man, Chris excelled at various sports and was able to run 100 metres in under 11 seconds! His favourite movie is “Dirty Harry”, his first job was as a shelf stacker at Lennon’s in Warrington and he would most like to have dinner with the controller of rugby league referees! He also makes a cracking cup of coffee.


For many, Bev’s is the first friendly voice they will hear or the first friendly face they will see when they contact us here at Macbeth Scott & Co. Her “front of house” position allows her to meet and engage with many different people from many walks of life, meaning that no two days are ever the same, and it is this aspect of her job that she enjoys the most. Bev’s first ever job was as a canvasser for a local newspaper, though she was later to become a professional singer and dancer! In her spare time Bev enjoys playing badminton, a bit of DIY, especially wallpapering, and likes to watch historical films, period dramas and the occasional “chick flick”.


Paul is in short “a walking encyclopaedia” when it comes to insurance. His vast knowledge has been gained over 21 years whilst working for companies such as Norwich Union and General Accident, though his early career involved selling fruit and veg’ off the back of a barrow on Walthamstow market! In his spare time Paul enjoys spending time with his children and following his beloved Leyton Orient, although as his chosen team are rarely on the TV these days he is happy to watch proper football teams as well. Michael Caine is Paul’s favourite actor and someone he would be happy to have around for dinner, perhaps whilst watching “Get Carter” or “Only Fools and Horses”.


Paul is our newest recruit and brings with him a wealth of experience from companies such as AXA and RAC, not to mention a stint as a driving instructor for the AA. Paul, who is also from Lancaster, particularly enjoys interacting with customers and striving to find them the most suitable level of cover for their needs, and at the best price. In his spare time he is an ardent Preston North End fan, and lists his main dislike as Burnley FC! As well as watching football, Paul likes to play football with his son. This helps to keep him fit as does his love of cycling. He may want to stay “in shape” as his claim to fame is that he once accidentally pushed over Ricky Hatton in a nightclub!


Eamonn has previously worked for RAC, Allianz-Cornhill and AXA but his first ever job was as a trainee accountant for a renovations company. He has been with us since 2008 and helped to set up and now runs our busy RentGuardian department which deals with all aspects of rental property insurance. In his spare time Eamonn enjoys the outdoors and is a keen birdwatcher, photographer and allotmenteer. He also sings in a local choir and plays ukulele, guitar and keyboards but most of his spare time is taken up enjoying the company of his young son.
