Reinforces its senior management team

UK-based MMA Insurance has appointed Bob Perry as claims director. He will report to Garry Fearn, chief executive of MMA.

Mr Perry will be responsible for all claims functions within MMA including motor, property and casualty claims, anti financial crime and claims supplier management. He joined MMA in May 2009 as interim claims director.

Prior to joining MMA, he was managing director of ACM ULR, the claims division of BGL Group. He has also been claims director for budget and has held a number of key claims roles for Zurich Municipal and AGF Insurance.

Mr Fearn said: “As we refocus our business towards Commercial Lines, our Claims proposition to SME clients is key to our successful development.  As a broker insurer we are also mindful of the current challenges around the motor claims process. I am confident that Bob brings the necessary experience and expertise to ensure that MMA delivers the critical service at “the moment of truth” for our policyholders.”
