Claire Ginnelly has been appointed managing director of PMI and protection intermediary Premier Choice Group.
Ginnelly joined PCG as head of healthcare in 2013 having been head of distribution at Simplyhealth following the acquisition of Groupama Healthcare, where she had the same role. Prior to that, she had been head of intermediary sales at Standard Life Healthcare and broker consultant at WPA, Chancery Healthcare and Norwich Union Healthcare.
PGC chief executive Ann Daniels says: “Claire’s many years of experience working for insurers has been a great asset to the team. Her ability to provide a balanced view on anything to do with private medical insurance from both an insurer and intermediary viewpoint has been invaluable. Her new role allows her expertise to expand across all areas of our business; private medical insurance, cash plans, protection, group risk and employee benefits.
“PCG places great emphasis on its relationships with insurers and works strenuously to maintain close commercial relationships with all insurers across all product lines. Claire is the right person to continue and build on this essential part of our business.”
