Outgoing Rural founder pays tribute to colleagues and brokers

A view of UK countryside

Mr Harvey - who created Rural in 1995 - has announced his decision to step down from his role at the Harrogate-based insurer.

He commented: "I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Rural and would like to thank all my colleagues and the supporting brokers that I have worked with over the last 17 years which has passed by so quickly.
