A History Of Personalised
Service and Expert Advice…

Northcrest was founded in Manurewa back in 1986 by Dave Tilleyshort and two colleagues. They decided it was time to start a brokerage that offered a full range of insurance products for their clients with personalised service and was independent from any other insurance company. Fast forward thirty years to today and this foundation has remained. Today Northcrest is lead by Gerard Tilleyshort who is passionate about helping small and medium sized businesses succeed. With an emphasis on you as the client and a strong understanding through experience of what it takes to run a successful SME, Gerard and his team are focused on understanding your situation, whether it is personal or business and offering the right solution. Northcrest offers a full service in fire & general, life and home finance.


Northcrest is a part of NZBrokers, this is a collaboration group of 54 NZ owned and operated professional insurance brokers. As part of this alliance we are able to leverage the strength and capability of the collective while retaining our own successful formula of personalised client service, local knowledge and long standing relationships developed from 30 years in the industry. All members of NZBrokers must belong to and meet the professional standards of the insurance Brokers Association of NZ (IBANZ)
