Our team

Graham Webster MD of aba

Graham Webster

Managing Director and founder

“I have now been in the insurance business for over 50 years. I really can’t believe it, but I suppose it does mean that I have a huge amount of experience and knowledge to bring to the table. I started aba Group in 1993 and the company has grown steadily since that time. I am lucky to be supported by a dedicated friendly team who make coming to work a pleasure. When not at work I do enjoy DIY jobs around the house and also dining out with friends and family.”

“It seems like only yesterday that I started work for the Eagle Star insurance company in Warrington but it is actually now over 40 years ago. How quickly time flies when you are having fun! Graham approached me in 1995 to join aba Group as we had successfully worked together in a previous business and I became a director at aba Group in the year 2000. As well as looking after my loyal and long-standing clients, I am also involved in new business development helping to ensure the continued growth of the company. Away from the office, I enjoy having a beer or two with the family, watching my son who plays volleyball, and following Wigan Warriors rugby league team. I am a real ‘USophile’ and enjoy holidays in America.”

“After the directors, I am the longest-serving member of aba Group. I started at the tender age of 16 as an office junior and 16 years later I am now part of the furniture working as an account handler. We have a happy team, which makes coming to work fun. Out of work, I enjoy spending time with my children, walking, eating out and socialising.”

“Although I am new to the insurance industry, I have worked in administration for over 10 years. aba is a great company to work for, we are a happy and supportive team. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my son, exercising and catching up with my friends over dinner and a glass or two of red wine.”

“I’ve used aba for many years now both for my business insurance and for my rental properties. I trust them (which I can’t say about most insurance companies) and prefer to speak to one of their team as it is easier than exchanging lots of emails.
