The Company was started by Norman Hudson MBE in 1970. Based in Bradford and trading as Insurance Consultants he was joined first by Rodney Foster and later by Keith Brown.
In 1986 David Holdsworth joined the company to head the Financial Services side of the business.
Further expansion plans led to the appointment of John McMahon in 1993 to further develop commercial insurance connections.
The Company continued to grow and in 1995 Hudson Foster relocated to our current premises at Ilkley Hall. Situated in its own grounds with good parking and meeting facilities it was the perfect environment to further expand our business operation.
In the positive financial climate of the nineties we acquired many new clients and were particularly active in the corporate market. We recruited more administrative staff to meet the extra demand and also expanded our sales force to enable us to increase new business.
In 1998 Marie Jowett joined us from Barclays Investment Services followed by Mark Holdsworth in 2003 who had previously held positions with Norwich Union and Scottish Equitable.
We provide corporate clients with advice and management expertise in all the key areas that affect the financial security both of the company and its employees.
We provide advice and guidance to thousands of individuals in the key areas of insurance and financial planning that are so important to their financial future.
