Hopwood takes over as MD at Assureweb

Assureweb has appointed Nigel Hopwood as managing director.

He will take control of the day-to-day running of the portal from chief executive Charles Bryant who becomes chairman and will take a more hands-off role. Bryant is also commercial director of Sesame.

Hopwood was previously IT director at Bankhall for two years, working on IFAengine, and before that worked for Norwich Union for eight years as head of IFA e-commerce.

He says he spent a great deal of time working with Assureweb in his previous roles and was one of the first people to see the original plans for the portal when it was being developed by Assuresoft.

Hopwood says: “I am de-lighted to be joining Assure-web, having been involved in the portal for the last seven years. Assureweb is a significant player in the market and is an attractive proposition in terms of straight-forward transactions and future multi-tie deals.”
