John Eastwood

Chairman

I started work in 1965 for Commercial Union and began broking seven years later. In 1976, I set up my own insurance broking business and I concentrated on working in the general insurance side of the business . I have acted as chairman of a financial services company since 1977. Away from the office, my interests include skiing, sailing and all aspects of fine drinking, including cider-making.

Jayne Clowes

Director

My career in the insurance industry began in 1980 and I was a co-founder of Eastwood and Partners in 1991. My role is Director in charge of the office and account handler for commercial clients and I am passionate about attention to detail.My interests out of work include spending time at the coast, walking, cooking, fashion and family life.

Tony Crabtree

After complete failure at carving out a footballing career, I fell into working in insurance. After a spell working for Provident, I moved into the broking sector. I have now been with Eastwood and Partners for seven years, progressing to the Board in 2011. Outside insurance I'm a governor at an infant and primary school and also like to get involved with junior sport. I still enjoy playing a bit of football, golf and rugby.

I have worked as an Insurance Broker since 1980, when I first met Jayne and John.
