Insurance services firm Jensten Group has announced the appointment of Jonathan Skinner as group placement director.
Upon taking up the newly created position later this year, Skinner will also be appointed to the company’s executive committee, joining newly added Amy Smith who became group marketing director in August.
In the role, Skinner will be responsible for driving the firm’s insurer placement strategy across its retail insurance broking, Lloyd’s and London Market broking, and specialist underwriting departments.
Alistair Hardie, group CEO at the company, said: “Jonathan’s experience of working both within, and with, insurance carriers will prove invaluable as we develop our proposition.
“His expertise will ensure that we continue to deliver for our brokers, including Coversure franchisees, and our clients, while developing new opportunities. It also supports our mission of providing a compelling alternative home for entrepreneurial mid-market and specialist community brokers.”
Skinner provides the role with 17 years of insurance marketing experience, most recently as capacity director at Pen Underwriting.
He has also previously founded and sold his own MGS, AML Underwriting, and has acted as head of regional development and UK development at WR Berkley and Evergreen respectively.
