Lisa has over 25 years of experience within the insurance industry working for Brokers and MGA's both provincial and nationally. She started her early career with rating guides and issuing manual cover-notes, and moved onto developing and growing multi-million pound accounts, to now working for an international I.T solutions software company! Insurance isn't what she would call rousing, but distribution solutions and its people enthuse her and definitely puts that fire in her belly!


On a personal note what makes her tick is travelling; new places, new cultures, and history. She enjoys meeting new people from all walks of life, and all backgrounds, as well as hearing their stories and sharing hers!


When not travelling she spends time with her family dragging them on random 'drop of the hat' adventures making everlasting memories.

She is excited to be joining SchemeServe and her fellow other purple people, and is motivated to have been given the opportunity to work with so many creative passionate colleagues in delivering a seamless agile I.T solution for the insurance industry!

Michaela Butcher

Obsessive Support™

Michaela has held both Compliance (but don’t hold it against her!) and Customer Service roles in the GI market for the last 15 years working for insurers and MGAs, so she understands the requirements of all parties when building and managing schemes. Her overriding role has always been one of problem-solving, really getting to the core of an issue and identifying the necessary steps to resolve the problem.

Michaela doesn’t have much spare time between looking after her horse and swimming a few times a week, but when she does she likes to watch the Great British Bake Off and imagine that she might get around to making some of the lovely breads made by the equally lovely Paul Hollywood.
