Coplus appoints Managing Directors to lead new divisions
We are delighted to announce the appointment of two Managing Directors to lead a a new divisionalised structure. Andrew Bennett is the new Managing Director for Insurance Products and James Blyth has been appointed as Managing Director for Claims.
Both Andrew and James have a wealth of expertise within insurance and claims handling.
Andrew has worked within the General Insurance industry for 20 years with market leaders such as Allianz, BGL Group, Direct Line and General Motors subsidiary MICL.
James joined Coplus in 2000 and has been instrumental in the businesses evolution and growth with vast experience within the operation.
On his appointment Andrew said “I’m really excited to be leading the product division at Coplus. There is great scope for our insurance products and now with some early wins under our belt we believe we can show true customer value at competitive prices using innovative financial models reflecting the modern business that we are. The Coplus approach to capacity provision, compliance and technical underwriting gives us a strong capability in this changing market and one that we are looking to capitalise on fully.”
James commented “The divisionalised structure will help us gain traction in both our core markets. Specifically in claims handling we are gearing up for growth in specialist FNOL with telematics and pay as you go being big growth areas. The whiplash reforms and our capability in small claims handling also opens up a range of new markets as high quality, cost managed support for claimants is vital going forward and it’s something we can do very well.”
The divisionalised structure does not affect our trading name or legal status, this is an exercise to enable us to focus fully on financial reporting and strategic objectives for each profit centre.
