Craig Tracey was born in Durham and attended the city’s Framwellgate Moor Comprehensive School. His family come from a mining background in the North East.
Craig started his own Insurance Brokerage business which he ran for 20 years before being elected as member of Parliament for his home constituency of North Warwickshire.
He lives in Shuttington, near Polesworth, and moved to North Warwickshire in 1997 where he met his wife Karen.
In the build up to the 2015 General Election the Financial Times described him as "the sort of candidate who hardly happens these days... totally apolitical until seven years ago when he became increasingly incensed by the effect on his business of EU regulations and Labour indifference".
Locally, Craig continues to campaign for improved road safety, protection of the green belt, support for businesses to create jobs and apprentices and for a stable future for George Eliot Hospital.
In the 2017 general election local residents gave Craig a vast show of support by re-electing him in the North Warwickshire and Bedworth Parliamentary seat with 26,860 votes – a strong majority of 8510.
