Swinton has appointed a new chief financial officer with the rest of its new board expected to be in place by September.

In an exclusive interview with Insurance Times, Swinton chief executive Christophe Bardet confirmed that interim chief financial officer Charles Bellringer had left the company and been replaced by former Provident finance boss Christian Charles Plumer.

Bardet said that new marketing and IT directors would be appointed over the next few weeks in time for the company’s strategic review in September.

The new hires will replace the five former Swinton board directors including chief executive Peter Halpin, marketing director Nick Bowyer, finance director Anthony Clare, operations director Jackie Ordish and IT and business change director Adrian Hazeldine, who were all sacked in December by parent company Covéa over concerns about performance-related share scheme payments.
