Neil Wormald joins as operations director

Arista Leeds branch manager Neil Wormald has been appointed as operations director at broker Henderson.

Insurance Times understands his appointment is unrelated to Towergate’s acquisition of Arista in April.

Towergate declined to comment on the appointment.

In 2011, Wormald was promoted to branch manager for the north east of England.

Based in Arista’s Leeds office, he was responsible for growing the MGA’s business in the north east.

Prior to that he was one of Arista’s broker development managers.

Wormold joined Arista in January 2010 from NIG, where he was previously a regional manager based in Leeds.
