PruProtect hires new underwriting and claims director

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.
