She assumed the role at the beginning of the month, and her arrival marks the second non-executive director hire for GRP in as many months, following digital leader Mark Hepsworth’s appointment as non-executive director in December.
Dale currently holds non-executive roles at life and pensions consolidator Chesnara Plc, as chair of the risk and audit committee. She also chairs the audit committee at Covea Insurance.
During her executive career, she was finance director at AIG Life between 2011-2015, and held senior roles at Shop Direct, Genworth Financial and Legal and General, where she was MD general insurance.
Commenting on her appointment, OpCo board chairman Andy Homer said: “I am delighted to secure someone of Jane’s calibre for this important position within the group.
“Her skill set and industry knowledge makes her a valuable addition to our highly experienced team of non-executive independent directors on GRP’s board.”
