CEGA has created a new role - head of proposition development - to support its growth drive into new markets and territories. The move underpins the vigorous growth agenda adopted since the company's acquisition last year by Charles Taylor plc.
Angela Smith, who takes on the new role, is an industry heavyweight with well over a decade's management and development experience in the insurance sector. Her significant achievements in former roles include developing underwriting tools that supply more than 85% of the UK travel insurance market.
Smith will now continue CEGA's development of versatile digital and operational solutions to ease processes for all those involved in the insurance chain; from insurers themselves, to brokers, intermediaries, consumers and more. Top of her developmental agenda is an agile medical screening product for the global travel insurance sector. This will provide flexible parameters for underwriters, reduce complexity for customers and offer tailored risk assessments for insurers, covering, for example, specific consumer groups, travel destinations and illness combinations.
Of her new role at CEGA, Smith says, "Agility and transparency are key to providing solutions in a rapidly changing insurance market and I look forward to being proactive in developing flexible, tailored products that are both client and customer-centric."
Muir Robertson, Managing Director of CEGA, comments, "Angela's breadth of experience adds significant value to our service offering and her appointment demonstrates our commitment to meet the ever-evolving needs of clients with innovative new products to support the insurance sector. Her role is integral to our growth agenda which, so far this year, has delivered expansion of our client-facing teams, strategic partnerships to extend our service provision and state-of-the-art travel risk management solutions."
