Premium Credit has appointed Giles Offen as its first chief product and technology officer as part of plans to bolster its offering for the insurance market.

A statement released today (8 January 2024) said Offen would lead the development of digitally enabled services and oversee digital product design, platform management and provision of insights.

He will also be accountable for the information technology, information security, change, digital and data teams.

“I am pleased to join Premium Credit at such an exciting time for both the business and their digital development,” Offen said.

“I look forward to leading the digital and technology teams as we iterate our platforms and services to deliver ongoing, innovation led payment solutions that meet the needs of customers and partners.”


Offen joins the premium finance company from Just Group, where he was most recently group chief digital information officer.

In the role he was responsible for technology, change and architecture, as well as embedding modern methods of change delivery.

He has also worked for Partnership Assurance Group, Reed Elsevier, Lexis Nexis and Cashplus during his career.

Tara Waite, Premium Credit’s chief executive, said: “I am delighted to announce the creation of this new role and welcome Giles to my executive team.

“Premium Credit, as market leader, has a long and proud tradition of introducing cutting-edge technology and products to improve the customer journey, transforming the relationship between insurer, insurance broker and customer.

“As we continue to invest in our people and infrastructure, Giles will lead the delivery of new digital platforms and initiatives, adding to those we’ve introduced and received critical acclaim for in recent years.”
