TWO senior figures have joined the executive team at UK Warranty, it was revealed yesterday.

UK Warranty, which is a joint venture between Leeds-based specialist insurer UK General and domestic appliance service and support provider Pacifica Group, has appointed Nicola Sumner and Jon Negri to its board.

Mrs Sumner, who leads the claims, actuarial and insurer relations team at UK General, has wide experience in executive roles in the insurance sector.

She was recently managing director of UK General’s Irish insurance business.

Mr Negri, who has taken on the role of sales director, was previously head of business development.

He has also worked at emergency home repairs firm, HomeServe, and Dixons where he was trading manager for Curry’s warranty product in the UK.

Neil Martin, managing director at UK Warranty, said: “Nicola and Jon will be great assets to the UK Warranty board at a time when the company is growing fast and continuing to attract well-known consumer brands as clients.”
