Alec Finch & Company has appointed former Jelf regional managing director Mike Latham as group managing director.

Prior to joining Jelf, Latham was managing director at Manson Insurance Brokers before the consolidator purchased the broker in January 2008.

In a statement, Alec Finch said the appointment tied in to plans by Verlingue, its French broking parent.

Verlingue president Jacques Verlingue said: “We are looking forward to having Mike on board to continue to drive the UK operation towards achieving our ambitious growth plans.”
