Laura Hyde

Laura Marsh
07919 302038

Laura is the owner of PPS GI and one of the co-founders when the business was formed in 2009. She manages the business as well as the relationships with our veterinary clients with the support of the specialist staff.

Laura lives in Worcester with her little stray friend named Cat and has two grown up daughters, Grace & Charlotte. In her spare time she enjoys DIY in her new house, gardening when it’s not raining and anything that doesn’t involve policy wordings!

David Hodgetts

David Hodgetts

David, who was one of the founders of PPS GI in November 2009, tragically passed away on 17th March 2017.

He is very much missed in our lives and his loss is still felt keenly by colleagues and clients alike.

He will always be in our hearts and thoughts.


Lisa Wakefield
Office Manager 

Lisa re-joined PPS GI in November 2016 following a few years absence living the dream in Cyprus and has recently been promoted to the role of office manager.   

She lives in Bromsgrove with her husband Neil and their dogs, Willis and Spare.

Clive Payne
Compliance Officer

Clive joined PPS GI in January  as our Compliance Officer, having worked previously for PPS, the financial services practice, for just over 4 years. 

When not keeping us on the straight and narrow of the Compliance path, Clive can be found on our television screens, working on serials such as Doctors, the daytime local drama, or speaking on local radio.

Having retired as a Special Constable last year, after 15 years, he is now looking to train as a Magistrate.  

Angela Downes
Insurance Consultant 

Angela has worked at PPS GI since 2008, having worked for a personal lines broker for a number of years before that.

She lives in Bromsgrove with her husband Dan and their two beautiful children, Harry & Ella.  She generally comes to work for a rest, or at least some conversation that doesn’t involve Luke Skywalker & Disney Princesses!!

In her spare time, she likes to shop, probably a little too much, and is learning how to crochet.


Sue Hodgetts
Accounts Manager  

Sue continues to work with PPS GI, undertaking their accounts function, as she has done since the business started, and for many years with PPS before that.
