A-Plan’s chief operating officer Mark Selby has left the company.

A Companies House filing shows that Selby ceased to be a director of A-Plan Holdings on 6 November.

The high-street broker has hired former Capita executive Mike Edgeley to replace Selby.

Edgeley was previously managing director of outsourcing firm Capita’s specialist medical businesses, and before that was managing director of broker Lancaster Insurance Services.

Lancaster was owned by Capita, but was bought by insurance group Markerstudy at the end of 2013.

Edgeley also spent almost eight years at broking group BGL.

A-Plan said that in his new role as chief operating officer, Edgeley will play a key role in executing the broker’s growth strategy following the investment from private equity house HgCapital earlier in the year.

A-Plan chief executive Carl Shuker said: “[Edgeley’s] significant industry experience will be instrumental as we continue to grow whilst delivering a market-leading proposition to our clients.”

Edgeley added: “I have known the team at A-Plan for some time and its client-focused approach and dedication to market-leading service is a proposition I have long admired. I look forward to helping the business continue its growth trajectory with the support of its new shareholder.”

A-Plan also confirmed that it has appointed former AXA Commercial Lines and Personal Intermediary chief operating officer Max Carruthers as its non-executive chairman.
