MCE Insurance has welcomed Leonard Labinjo to its board as finance director.
The appointment is the second addition to the leadership team, following Paul Ormiston joining MCE as claims director in July.
Labinjo brings 15 years of strategic financial management experience to MCE’s senior management team. In his new role, he will take “full responsibility” for the firm’s finance function.
MCE said the appointment comes at an “exciting time” for the group. The business has committed to full digitisation, a process that saw an investment of around £3m in 2020.
Julian Edwards, CEO at MCE, said: “Insurance is changing. There’s been so much talk in the industry about digitisation and the insurtech future – but I’ve seen little evidence of many businesses actually, culturally, taking that step and making it happen.
“Now we have taken that step, we have the technology to allow growth and diversification. Leonard’s appointment is a critical piece of the jigsaw, and I’m excited to have him joining the leadership team as we grow.”
