Direct Group’s Claims Division, with locations in Doncaster, Elland and Preston, Lancashire, has hired three new account managers to manage increased growth.
Following its acquisition by Ardonagh Group last year, DG claims has taken on responsibility for claims management for Geo Underwriting (formerly Towergate Underwriting) as an outsourced provider within a group structure.
Katrina Beagan, Sam Horton and Tracey McManus take up their new roles with immediate effect. Sam is an internal appointment, while Tracey joined DG at the end of March from Endsleigh and Zurich, where she spent eight years in the household claims team. Katrina joined DG from Imperial Consultants.
Lee Bradshaw, director of account management, said: “These new appointments reflect the fact that DG’s growth has accelerated since becoming part of Ardonagh Group. We are one of the few businesses in the claims sector that is growing and its important we recruit for this.”
“As a result we needed to develop our account management team to support our clients. This process is ongoing so we are keen to talk to high calibre people who want to work in a rapidly expanding claims business.”
