Topsail Insurance, now in its 26th year, is expanding both globally and in the UK. The newest team member to join the Brighton Marina office team is Reina Hawkes from Portslade.
Reina has been with Topsail for a month and we took a minute to have a catch up and find out more about our new colleague.
Where are you from? I am from Portslade, East Sussex
When did you start? I started on 10 July
What are you working on? I am Account Executive of Yacht & Motorboat Accounts
Where were you working before Topsail? I had previously been with Navigators & General for seven years, working in the claims department
How has your first month been? It is always challenging starting something new and learning new skills but I am getting to grips with it.
What are you looking forward to most? I am looking forward to being more confident of the Travel side of the business and being able to fully assist our clients.
What do you like most about being in Brighton Marina? I like the close-knit team and the smaller office and it is great to be able to go and sit in the sun at lunchtime, but I do miss the shops of the city.
Topsail loves animals and has a very dog-friendly office, do you have any pets? I have a Bijon called Maddie. If I could bring her into work with me I would.
Do you have any hobbies? I love shopping, reading and swimming. I swim 100 lengths a week and I read as much as I can.
Tell us something no one knows about you! I have a nail application certificate, I am qualified to apply OPI and gel nails. I mostly do this for myself.
Since joining the team Reina has introduced the team to book club and everyone is currently getting to grips with their first novel.
