Justin Clarke has been promoted from head of pricing projects at DLG

NIG has promoted Justin Clarke to director of underwriting and pricing for the Direct Line Group-owned insurer.

He replaces Martin Hall who left last month after five years with NIG.

Clarke was previously head of pricing projects at Direct Line Group.

In his new role Clarke will be responsible for the implementation and performance of NIG’s pricing and underwriting strategy.

He will also work closely with NIG’s trading branches and TheHub team on the insurer’s e-traded products.

NIG managing director Jon Greenwood said: “With Justin’s wealth of experience, he will be a powerful addition to my management team and will be key to delivering our 2014 plans and subsequent commercial strategy.” 

Clarke added: “I am looking forward to returning to NIG and supporting the development of both our complex and etrade propositions. 

“This will enable our regional branches and TheHub team to continue to provide products and services that support our brokers to meet the ever changing needs and requirements of our end customers.”
