Jelf has appointed Wayne Pontin as executive director, mergers and acquisitions.
Pontin, who is also currently chairman of the Association of Medical Insurance Intermediaries (AMII), was previously sales director for Jelf Employee Benefits.
Pontin’s experience in the health insurance market will help him in his new role in identifying opportunities for growth.
Alex Always, chief executive at Jelf, said: “To maintain the success of our employee benefits business, and to deliver our targets, we believe our organic growth should be coupled with acquisitive growth, as and when the right opportunity arises.
“With all the experience and contacts Wayne has, he is ideally placed to identify these opportunities.”
