Coplus makes senior management changes

Coplus has announced the appointment of two divisional managing directors as part of a business restructure. Andrew Bennett is the new managing director for insurance products, while James Blyth has been appointed as managing director for claims.

Mr Bennett has worked in general insurance for 20 years, including roles at Allianz, BGL Group, Direct Line and General Motors subsidiary MICL. He said “I’m really excited to be leading the product division at Coplus. There is great scope for our insurance products and now with some early wins under our belt we believe we can show true customer value at competitive prices using innovative financial models reflecting the modern business that we are. The Coplus approach to capacity provision, compliance and technical underwriting gives us a strong capability in this changing market and one that we are looking to capitalise on fully.”

Mr Blyth joined Coplus in 2000 and has been instrumental in the businesses evolution and growth with vast experience within the operation. He said: “The divisionalised structure will help us gain traction in both our core markets. Specifically in claims handling we are gearing up for growth in specialist FNOL with telematics and pay as you go being big growth areas. The whiplash reforms and our capability in small claims handling also opens up a range of new markets as high quality, cost managed support for claimants is vital going forward and it’s something we can do very well.”
