Motor insurer Markerstudy Group has appointed Benny Higgins as Group Chairman, following its acquisition of Brightside Group.
Markerstudy received its regulatory approval for the acquisition on 22nd March, with the deal completed on 12th April.
Kevin Spencer, Group CEO, said: “We are steering Markerstudy Group on an exhilarating growth trajectory and due to our size, diversity, and speed of acceleration, it’s the optimum time to invite a Chairman on board to complement the skills of my existing board of Directors.
“Benny has vast financial sector experience, coupled with a social and philanthropic conscience, and it’s these combined attributes which attracted us to him, and which align so well with our plans for the future.”
Higgins added: “I am thrilled to be joining Markerstudy Group at such a pivotal moment and appreciate the opportunity to provide counsel.
“Post-pandemic, the ‘new’ normal which Markerstudy is wholeheartedly embracing includes a deeper understanding of an organisation’s impact on the environment, and its social and governance principles.
“ESG is a top priority for Markerstudy, and I am passionate about supporting change for improvement across my non-executive portfolio.”
