Lucy answers insurance career call
If you ring RentCover, your call could well be answered by Lucy Moros – a receptionist who knows the insurance business inside and out, courtesy of over 20 years in the industry.
Lucy joined EBM Insurance Brokers almost a year ago, initially starting in RentCover and moved to reception to gain a broader understanding of the company as a whole.
Her passion for insurance started in the 1980s, when she joined a Lloyd’s Syndicate in London as a marine treaty reinsurance clerk.
“Going into the old Leadenhall Lloyd’s building and seeing underwriters and brokers transacting over a billion pounds of risk around the world on a daily basis was the most amazing experience in my career,” she said.
“Another memorable experience was meeting Princess Diana when she visited Lloyd’s as there were very few women working there at the time.”
After Lucy and her husband moved to Australia in a spirit of youthful adventure, she worked for a number of corporate brokers and insurers, specialising in property and construction cover.
Lucy took time out from insurance after having a baby, instead working from home to establish a successful corporate gift business servicing the building industry.
“Even though the business was great, I still missed insurance so I got back into it when my son started school. The insurance industry is like a family – no matter how long you’ve been away, you always feel a part of it,” she said.
In addition to her reception duties, Lucy has lent her expertise to the RentCover and builders warranty insurance divisions: “EBM is a growing business, and I’d like to grow my career with the company in coming years.”
Outside work, Lucy enjoys flower arranging – sometimes helping a florist friend during busy periods – and classical music.
To keep fit and relax, she does regular and aqua Zumba dance/exercise classes as well as Hatha yoga and “Chiball” – a mind-body exercise and wellness programme with a foundation in traditional Chinese medicine.
