Karen said: “I am absolutely delighted that Jane is joining our team. She is a hugely experienced risk and compliance practitioner, and is also local to Yorkshire, illustrating that there is plenty of senior insurance talent in this part of the world.”

Karen said that Jane joins UKG from Bluefin, where she was chief risk officer for the group. Jane was previously risk and compliance director at Bluefin and has also held senior and management positions at Smart & Cook, IBM and Commercial Union.

She said: “I am really looking forward to my new role working alongside Karen, at an exciting time for UK General as it prepares for new ownership.  The personal lines market is in a state of rapid change, driven by technology, regulation and changing customer buying habits.”

“In stepping across from broking to one of the UK’s leading personal lines MGAs, I am committed to playing a full part in helping UK General achieve its long term strategic ambitions.”
