June and Douglas Goater Retire
After 14 successful years, we are both delighted and sad at the same time to announce that June & Douglas Goater will be retiring from their executive roles at Network. June will become a Non-Executive Director on the board and Douglas will remain as Chairman.
Douglas & June will both hand over their day-to day roles, although Douglas will be working ad-hoc within the office to further our claims proposition.
In June 2006 June & Douglas Goater took a leap of faith and purchased NetworkDirect Ltd (as we were then known). Since then, the company has transformed from a small insurance broker to one of the leading Independent Insurance Brokers and Independent Financial Advisers in Guernsey.
Oliver, Managing Director of Network said, "It has been an honour to work with June & Douglas (Mum & Dad). Not many children have the privilege to work alongside their parents and in the process build a successful business. As a child you look up to your parents and I have total admiration for what they have achieved in such a short space of time and look forward to building on their legacy".
June & Douglas said, "We are delighted with what we have accomplished at Network since 2006. It has been hard work, with many challenges along the way; however we could not have achieved it without the dedication and support of the team at Network and the loyalty of our customers. We feel the time has come to step back and enjoy a more relaxed way of life, possibly without the planned travel! Not many business owners have the advantage of being able to leave control of their company to a family member, and we have three within the business as well as an amazing team. We have complete confidence in the current team to drive the business forward and look forward to watching them grow. No doubt we will be popping in out of the blue to see how they are getting on."
All the team at Network wish June & Douglas and very happy retirement.

I want to retire... can I?
Up until relatively recently, retirement ages were viewed as a fixed date with people working towards a specific age (and even day) their entire working life. Is the norm about to change?
I'm an islander
When you move to Guernsey, there's a lot to work out, as Network's director and financial adviser Bex Goater found out when she relocated 13 years ago.
St Jacques Vikings praise Network for helping the club to grow
Network has sponsored St Jacques Vikings for many seasons. In a newly created league, the team has got off to a fantastic start this year.
Choosing the right insurer – are cheap premiums really worth it?
Value is about what lies beneath, and the customer’s perception of the content of the advice we as brokers give.
