David Kelly promoted to business development director.

Open GI has expanded its board with the appointment of business development director, David Kelly.

Kelly, who was previously national sales manager for Open GI, has been with the company since July 2006.

Prior to Open GI he worked in Financial Services for 20 years, working for one of the UK’s top five banks, Lloyds TSB Group. There he held a number of senior positions within the Retail, Business and Private Banking Divisions.

In his new role as business development director, Kelly will be responsible for developing new partnerships with third party companies and identifying opportunities to expand the range of services and facilities provided to the Open GI broker base.

Kelly said: “As one of the UK’s leading systems providers we are well placed to maximise the opportunities available to us in today’s market. E-commerce and the e-trading of commercial lines are just two of the areas I am keen to focus on in the new role – areas which will have a great impact on our customers.”
