Who is William Russell?

Yes, it does sound like the name of an insurance salesman from the 1990s. But that’s exactly the point. William Russell is the name Inez Cooper, Founder & Managing Director, chose when she started the company. In the 1990s, insurance was a male-dominated industry. Inez felt like the company needed a man’s name to be taken seriously. ‘William‘ is the name of Inez’s son, and ‘Russell‘ is a family name on Inez’s father’s side. James, Inez’s brother, joined soon after the company started trading, and the plan worked: the company grew quickly, and we still receive letters addressed to Mr William Russell today!
