The Baileys Insurance Team
Neil Bailey ANZIIF, AFIIBA email@example.com
Neil is the company founder and managing director. He has insurance experience spanning more than twenty eight years, originally working at Royal Insurance in Auckland before leaving to start Baileys in 1986 in his mother's garage. Along with managing the business and getting involved with tricky claims issues for clients, Neil specialises in pleasurecraft and other marine insurance, being a keen sailor himself and having been around boats since the age of 9. He also looks after the insurance requirements for many of our commercial clients. In his spare time, apart from sailing, he also enjoys travelling, music, catching up with friends & family and testing his culinary skills in the kitchen - much to his wife's delight!
"The past 25 years have been a bit of a whirlwind, and I'm proud of the team we have at Baileys today. Our success has been built around a genuine desire to help our clients, and to always do the right thing. Trust, integrity, stability and reliability are all traits that we possess, and these are what I believe insurance is all about" Neil B

His insurance experience now totals more than 28 years and he also shares in the management of the company, being a substantial shareholder. Pete has been an integral part of Baileys' success over the past 10 years through his total dedication and professional approach. From an insurance perspective he specialises in commercial insurance, with extensive knowledge and expertise in this area. After hours, Pete puts a lot of time into his family but still follows the rugby, and is still a big Crusaders fan!
