With Heather Herber Percy

About The County Register Founder

Heather Heber Percy

Heather is one of Britain’s foremost introduction agency specialists. She studied at The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and set up a small agency in Shropshire in 1983 which quickly grew to national coverage within 3 years. In 1987 Country Partners became a member of the Association of British Introduction Agencies. From the beginning, she based her service on personal interviews rather than ‘matching’ people through questionnaires or computer databases. In 1991, she created a specialised service to concentrate on providing the more in-depth search process offered by County Register. In the early 1990s Heather was also an Executive Director of Praxis Ltd, a company providing interim management jobs for people at top level.

Her years in the business have given her tremendous insights into human relationships. She uses these, together with her sympathetic interviewing skills, to gain a clear understanding of her clients’ needs and thus match them with suitable partners.

Heather also spent many years as a trainer for the Samaritans. Her expertise and knowledge means that she is often called upon for professional opinion and comment by the national press and media. She is Chairman of the Association of British Introduction Agencies.

Zara Heber Percy

Zara joined in 2005, so is a highly experienced and valued member of our team. She graduated from Leeds University, took a year out to travel the world and then worked as a client manager with The Red Consultancy and various other well known PR agencies. She handles her own client base within The County Register, working for both men and women in their thirties, forties and fifties. Zara began her training in 2009 to become a psychotherapist. She has also done various ‘Imago’ relationship workshops alongside her training that contribute to her role. These invaluable skills allow her to quickly build up a rapport and understand potential clients but in a gentle and understanding way.

Tracey Cater

Tracey is a farmers daughter from Warwickshire and it’s therefore totally appropriate that she joined the County Register in 2019 to work as a Membership Adviser. Having worked in the industry initially for Attractive Partners in 2007 and then the Dating Options Group, as a Senior Matchmaker and Matchmaking Team Manager at their Head Office in Warwickshire. Here Tracey built up considerable knowledge and expertise in those roles, gaining invaluable knowledge and experience of the dating industry.
Tracey’s empathetic demeanour along with her conscientious and caring nature and strong work ethic has brought a new dimension to the company, allowing potential clients to talk to her frankly but in complete confidence. She is a real asset to the County Register team.

Chrissie Brickley

Chrissie’s main career has been in education as a Teacher, Headteacher and then as an Adviser to Hampshire County Council preparing schools for OFTED inspections and supported more than 60. She joined The County Register in 2018 and has been carefully groomed for this key role by Heather Heber Percy personally, which is to deal with most membership enquiries in the South and South West of the country. Chrissie has the rare ability of being able to listen to others and grasp information. This in turn enables Chrissie to build accurate portfolios for her clients with detail and precision. Chrissie is a happy, positive lady with an effervescent and out going nature and is friendly to everyone she meets. She has the ability to enable others to reflect their hopes and dreams to her and to ultimately fulfil their lives by providing that perfect partner. That is what it is all about.

Kim Shaw

Following the retirement of Geraldine Turner in 2019, after 36 years at the helm, we are delighted to announce that Kim Shaw has been appointed as General Manager at The County Register and works with high end clients to provide the care and customer service that is very much expected of the County Register brand in conjunction with the founder Heather Heber Percy.
Kim came into the dating industry 3 years ago and quickly became a Senior Matchmaker and then was promoted to Matchmaking Team Manager, running one of the largest and most successful Matchmaking Teams in the country.
Kim’s success is down to leadership, customer service skills of the highest calibre and generally providing the sort of service that has been associated with The County Register since our formation in 1983.
