The Ardonagh Group has announced the promotions of two senior leaders within its platforms.
Jaime Swindle has joined the leadership team at Geo Underwriting to “support the development of its UK commercial MGA proposition” from 1 December, and Scott Bennett will become managing director of Bravo Networks from 1 December.
Swindle will join Derek Coles’ executive committee and work alongside chief commercial officer Nick Sharp.
Bennett has worked with the networks for 13 years, most recently as sales director where he has built strong relationships with insurers and ran the networks’ community of business development managers.
He will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the networks and report into Ardonagh Advisory chief commercial officer Phil Bayles.
Swindle said: “The industry is changing at pace and being part of Ardonagh means fantastic opportunities are constantly on the horizon. I will continue to champion Bravo Networks members and help to bring to life the opportunities I know brokers are looking for from an MGA in my new role.”
Bennett added: “I’m extremely excited to step into the Managing Director role and continue to build on the fantastic work that the teams at Bravo Networks deliver for our Members.
“In my 13 years with the Networks I’ve seen a huge progression and changes for the better, but one thing has always remained constant and that’s our mission to help grow, protect and support independent brokers across the UK.”
