Introducing Sharon Empson

The management and directors of KSL Insurance and the Maurice Trapp Group Limited are delighted  to announce the appointment of Sharon Empson as our new insurance adviser, based in our Christchurch office.
Sharon began her career in the legal environment. Over the course of 10 years, she worked across most areas of law, however mainly in litigation practice management. Sharon reflects, ’I have seen first-hand the hard personal and financial consequences of people failing to take prudent steps in managing personal and business risk factors’.

Following a short career break to start a family, Sharon established a home-based business assisting small business owners in aspects of running their businesses where required including bookkeeping and transcription services.

Everything changed after the Canterbury earthquakes and Sharon started working in the residential construction industry managing the operational activities of a building company from finance to contracts, health and safety to human resources. Building relationships with clients, suppliers and contractors were critical tasks, but risk management was the number one issue.    

In 2016 Sharon joined KSL Insurance; initially gaining experience in all aspects of operational  functions including compliance, underwriting and claims, and more recently in managing the client review process.  

Now having qualified as a professional financial adviser, Sharon is able to bring a wealth of experience to helping clients manage their risk and insurance matters.  In Sharon’s own words in ‘I am really looking forward to being able to provide advice and certainty to KSL Insurance clients; working alongside the current KSL Insurance advisers and the wider Maurice Trapp Group team.’

Sharon’s background, experience, and knowledge enables her to understand the risks that individuals, families and businesses face, and then develop appropriate insurance based plans that ensure these risks can be managed.

So, over the next few months do not be surprised if you get a phone call or a letter from Sharon. We have total confidence in her ability to help our clients make the most appropriate decisions in all risk and insurance matters.

But, if you have matters that need dealing with now, then call or contact Sharon directly. She will be happy to work with you.
