In April 2018 MacKay Corporate purchased West of Scotland Insurance Brokers, and one of the key assets was Barbara McLaughlin! Qualified with a Cert CII, Barbara joined West of Scotland Insurance almost 25 years ago, and has had a lengthy career in the insurance sector with experience in all types of client insurance requirements.

Despite being Branch Manager of the busy Greenock Office, Barbara still finds time to go to the gym most evenings and recently completed the Bear Grylls 10k challenge. Not one to be messed with she can deadlift 105kg, and if all else fails she can call on Line of Duty’s Martin Compston, also known as Detective Sergeant Steve Arnott, who is her cousin(in-law)!

We asked Barbara some quick fire questions:

  1. What are weekends all about? Family, my golden retriever Marley, and gin!
  2. If you were a superhero, what would your super power be? The ability to fly
  3. Who is your hero? My mum
  4. Who would you invite to a dinner party? Billy Connolly, Tom Cruise, Marilyn Munro & Bob Marley
