PremFina is the UK’s only venture capital-backed premium finance company

PremFina has appointed Nij Saha as its new chief technology officer.

Saha’s appointment is the second addition to the PremFina C-Suite this year and follows David Wardle’s appointment as chief operating officer in May.

Saha’s previous roles in his 17-year career include head of digital solutions at Fiserv, and global solution architect at Fidelity National Information Systems.

On top of this he has held various technical and managerial roles at SunGard Data Systems, White Clarke Group and Barclays and served as an army officer in the British Army for seven years, where he was responsible for operations, logistics and team development.

Saha will be responsible for incorporating innovative technologies and will oversee the current cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform.

He will be guiding the company’s strategy and the continued automation of existing processes.

“Nij joining us as at this time of our company’s growth marks an exciting time at PremFina,” said PremFina chief executive Bundeep Singh Rangar.

“With Nij at the helm of our growing IT team, I am confident we will be able to further progress our scaling ambitions in the UK and abroad. With his skillset and drive, we will be able to achieve an even higher level of service excellence.”
