James Page better known as Jim or Jimmy to his many friends founded Crossbrook Insurance Brokers in March 1953. He started with the philosophy of trading on the image of a small family run high street business relying on passing trade and 'word of mouth' for attracting new customers.
In March 2003 we celebrated fifty years in business with large articles in all the local papers. Jim sadly died in September that year, but his wife Audrey continues to run the company together with son Tim (who joined the company in 1986).
Although Crossbrook has traditionally been a personal lines broker, in March 2009 we expanded into commercial insurance, employing a full time commercial lines manager and assistant.
In April 2012 we launched a brand new website to co-incide with becoming a Limited Company.
In 2013 we celebratied our 60th year in business and together with a new 60th logo, we ran a series of adverts in all the local Hertfordshire and Essex newspapers to celebrate this.
