Crombie Lockwood - Bernard Cloete

I have worked in the Insurance industry for over 10 years in New Zealand and South Africa.  I have a passion for building strong relationships with my clients so that I can understand every facet of their business needs. As an Insurance Broker, I pride myself in providing proactive advice and tailored insurance solutions that meet these needs.

My fiancé, Riana and I moved to New Zealand from South Africa.  We were attracted to the Marlborough region not just because it’s the sunniest place in NZ, but we immediately felt the strong sense of community that exists here. We also wanted to give our son Leo all the opportunities that come with growing up in this part of the World. 

My roles at Crombie Lockwood as a Commercial Insurance Broker to name a few are;

  • Build strong relationships with our clients and the local community.
  • Ensure our clients have access to the best service and products available within the insurance market.  
  • Provide relevant, tailored advise to our client base.
  • Work closely with one of the major banks to assist their clients with business Insurance needs.

Crombie Lockwood has been helping New Zealanders protect what’s important for over 40 years. From our humble beginnings in Napier in 1978, we have proudly built up a network from Invercargill to Kaitaia. Today there is a team of around 900 people in more than 25 offices and we're now one of the largest insurance broking companies in New Zealand.  

Despite our size, we maintain a strong client focus and the longstanding relationships our business is built on.
