Global financial assistance product provider CPP Group has appointed Carl Carter as CEO of its UK business.
Carter (pictured) succeeds retiring UK MD Michael Whitfield who will remain with CPP Group, taking a strategic consultancy role to support the growth of the insurance business of the group.
Most recently managing director at wholesale and retail broker Voyager Insurance Services, Carter has almost 30 years’ marketing, development and senior executive leadership experience within the insurance, assistance and financial services sectors.
This includes a background in product innovation and diversification, where he has worked closely with existing and new brands to deepen commercial relationships and expand product lines.
His appointment is subject to regulatory approval.
Commenting on Carter’s appointment, CPP Group chief executive Jason Walsh said: “We began integrating our legacy and ongoing operations in the UK last year and Carl will help to complete that process, along with driving commercial aspirations in our home market.
“Carl brings an extensive knowledge of, and connections within, the insurance and wider financial services sector to CPP as well as a huge amount of business development and marketing experience.”
Carter added: “I am delighted to be joining CPP at a pivotal moment in the development of the UK operation. We have some exciting plans to drive the business forward and provide real value to our partners and their customers.
“The re-entry into the UK domestic market for new business since 2018 has seen good progress being made and we have a strong portfolio of insurance products and services which we’re planning to build on.
“I look forward to working with the talented team here, our underwriting partners and with all of our existing and new partners over the coming years.”
