Kristina Lushey, Dip CII, Assoc CIPD


Kristina first set up the business in 1999. Since then, she's had two Business Partners, a brief spell working for Reed Insurance in the City as the Senior Business Manager of their Flagship branch on Bury Street, then back to running her own agency.

She started in the insurance market, but in recent years has found herself working closely with start-ups and SME's. She works directly with companies at board level acting as an extension of their team, helping to recruit the best talent for their teams, through to handling employee relations in her HR Manager capacity.

Kristina loves to build long term working relationships with start-ups, supporting them through their most challenging times, enjoying the entrepreneurial environment, being an entrepreneur herself.
