Derek Green, founder and previous MD, has taken up the role of chairman of the board.
This announcement follows the appointments earlier this year of David McGill to the position of head of sales and Glen Coultish to head of operations. McGill was previously head of business partnerships at Paymentshield and Coultish was previously operations and development manager for Standard Life.
It is anticipated that both positions will join the board of D&D during 2005.
Thompson says:”The recent appointments and the restructuring of the board is part of the planned expansion of
D&D Homecare. We now have in place a team which can grow the business to its full potential. We are no longer a niche ASU product provider, we are now a large general insurance provider covering multiple products. This year we will write approaching £40m in gross premiums across all products. We have just launched a revolutionary new software solution which is being received by the market with great accolade. This is the first of many new developments in the pipeline and I very much look forward to leading the business through this important period of growth.”
Green adds: “Paul joined the business about three years ago and since then has supported me in growing the business into what is today a major player in the market. I am very confident under Paul's stewardship that we have a strong team and the structures in place to grasp the opportunities presented to us as we move into the era of regulation. As chairman I will continue to support the board and the direction of the business, but I will now have the time to focus on some broader business opportunities, for example possible acquisitions, away from the day to day running. Of course I may also find the time to fit in the odd round of golf.”
