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.
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 Chair Person of the Association of British Introduction Agencies.

Gina joined Matchmakers to help us extend our service to cover the whole of the UK in early 2019. Coming from a theatrical background and having enjoyed a highly successful career in the entertainment industry, she had the pleasure of working all around the world, meeting people from all walks of life and different cultures. After returning to the U.K, Gina became an Entertainment Agent, booking Artistes for the corporate market and high profile events.
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.
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.
