New roles at Bright Grey

Bright Grey has announced the appointment of Paddy Lynch as operations director, responsible for overseeing the combined areas of customer care, underwriting and IT.

It will also enable us to strategically position ourselves for the future and remain as leaders in our chosen markets.”
