Frank Kelly, Chief Executive Officer 

Having spent over 20 years in the construction industry managing projects as diverse as major civil engineering projects to house building, my focus on value engineering has given me a passion for this new sector.

It is our aim to develop the next generation flood protection products and then to deliver them to a global market. Research and development are vital sector and we have invested heavily to develop a research and testing centre in Worcestershire which puts UK Flood Barriers at the forefront of innovation.

A new sector brings with it new challenges, but we are an outstanding team, striving for excellence, searching for and implementing innovation, working with a passion and determination to continuously improve.

“We had been with our current broker for several years and had become complacent. An increase in premiums led us to want to cross check with an alternative broker and we chose Sutcliffe. We found them a breath of fresh air; there was a transparency in our dealings, their advice gave us options and they found competitive ways of providing insurance from high quality companies."
