April Thorne 1963-2015
On 25th December 2015 our dear colleague and Claims Manager April passed away after battling with cancer since midway through 2014.
April was highly respected by clients, colleagues and insurance market connections alike. She joined D E Ford Insurance Brokers in 2000, having previously worked for a number of major insurance companies since 1986 and before that being a member of HM Services. April’s keen sense of humour, her strong personal drive and her unerring will to win in everything she did were but a few of the personal qualities we all admired.
In her work she warmly espoused the values to which we at Fords aspire, being especially passionate about delivering the highest standards of client service. We know just how deeply April will be missed by our business, our people and our clients. Over the coming weeks and months our thoughts are very much with April’s daughter Jessica, for whom the loss is of course most acute.
