PruProtect has appointed Darren Lee as its new director of underwriting and claims.
Lee joins from Canada Life, where he had been deputy chief underwriter since March 2009. Prior to his time at Canada Life, Lee was a director of Big Picture Underwriting, a consultancy he owned.
He will join PruProtect next month, when current director of underwriting and claims Paul Gyseman retires.
PruProtect actuarial and product director Deepak Jobanputra says: “Having established ourselves as one of the UK’s fastest growing and most innovative insurers, it was vital we brought in someone with real pedigree to continue to build on our success. Darren brings with him a wealth of experience and shares our enthusiasm for service excellence, with a focus on superb customer outcomes.”
