This Christmas marks the retirement of one our longest serving team members.

A Very Happy Retirement to Margaret Bednall

December 2017

Margaret joined Bell and Co in 1989 from a national broker. Working within our Private Client team Margaret soon developed a loyal client following and many are still with the business 28 years later!

Commenting, Bell & Co Managing Director Richard Salt said “Margaret will be really missed by us all. She is one of the few remaining client facing staff who dealt in the era of the tariff companies, learnt how to rate risks pre e-trading and made the transition well when computers became such a key part of our day to day life.

A quiet and really efficient person, Margaret’s loyalty to the job and our business has been exemplary.

She is a great example to our younger team members and she has passed on a great amount of knowledge to them. On behalf of our team and our clients, I would like to wish Margaret and her husband Paul a very long, happy and healthy retirement together!”

The last word was left to Margaret who said “my 28 years here has flown by and I have really enjoyed being part of Bell and Co. I will miss all of my colleagues and my clients. For many clients, I have dealt with different generations of their family and like to know how they are doing personally as well as helping with their insurance requirements. It will be a big change but one I have been lucky enough to phase in gradually by moving to part time work a few years ago. I now look forward to continuing to travel and spending more time with my family and grandchildren.”
