Aston Lark has announced the promotion of Bethan Jones to integration director.
In this newly created role, Jones will have the responsibility for overseeing the “successful integration” of all of Aston Lark’s acquisitions.
Jones started her insurance career as a broker at Thomas Carroll in 2004 – where she gained chartered broker status before moving into a group operations role.
In 2017, she joined Aston Scott prior to its merger with Lark Group – and later in 2019 she was appointed to sit on the board.
As part of her role, Jones provides leadership across the firm’s project office and applications teams and more recently accelerated its data and analytics capability.
Whilst retaining this oversight, she will now formally take full responsibility for the integration of acquisitions across the group.
Peter Blanc, group CEO at Aston Lark, said: “Bethan has been with Aston Lark for almost four years and is our ‘go to’ expert for all things operational. As a chartered insurance broker in her own right, Bethan has a completely unique skillset – she understands insurance broking but also truly understands systems, data, MI and the importance of integration.
“We are therefore delighted to announce that we have promoted Bethan into this role and her appointment should give any companies that are thinking of joining forces with Aston Lark the confidence that they are in very safe hands.”
