The new appointee has served as a non-executive director at PremFina since October 2021

Premium finance firm PremFina has today (30 November 2022) announced that ex-Charles Taylor group chief executive David Marock has been appointed as its new chairman.

Marock, who has served as a non-executive director for PremFina since October 2021, was officially appointed chairman in July 2022, however the company has only confirmed the new hire today. 

Marock is also currently chairman at flood mapping insurtech Previsico - a role he has held since January 2022. Furthermore, he has been non-executive director at Standard life Savings since April 2017 and at parametric insurtech Skyline Partners since March 2022. 

PremFina UK and Ireland chief executive, Sharon Bishop, said: “Marock’s insight and approach is a valuable addition to our board.

“He has brought knowledge and experience as a non-executive director over recent months and I’m delighted to have his support in the new role of chairman.”

Shaping the market

Marrock has 30 years of industry experience.

As well as his non-executive roles, he worked as group chief executive for insurance technology company Charles Taylor for nine years between July 2011 and April 2021. During his tenure, the firm tripled in size.

Before this, he held roles such as group chief operating officer at insurer Beazley and associate principal at McKinsey and Company.

Marock said: “Premium finance is crying out for new approaches. There is room for a company to really shape and transform the market with a tech-enabled set of solutions and PremFina is well on the way to doing just that.

“I’m proud to be part of the journey to expand choices to the market with a range of propositions geared around the broker and their customers rather than a one-size-fits-all solution.

“Bishop and the wider team are fantastic to work with, combining drive and ambition with industry knowledge and technical know-how. I’m delighted to be supporting their growth trajectory.”
