Insurance tech firm Uinsure makes three new hires


InsurTech firm Uinsure has announced the appointment of three new hires.

The firm said the latest appointments are hoped to further help it in achieving its goal of automatically providing a GI quote alongside every mortgage transaction.

The Manchester-based B2B insurance provider has appointed Brionie Hemingway as chief governance officer while Lynda Blackwell is a new risk consultant and Cameron Parsons also joins as head of digital optimisation.

Hemingway, previously of Deloitte North and PwC London, has two decades of experience in risk and regulation.

“I’m really excited to be joining Uinsure, the business has made significant waves with its disrupting technology and features – really changing the dated methods the General Insurance industry has been used to for too long – it’s fantastic to be a part of this revolution,” she said.

Blackwell brings with her 16 years of experience as a mortgage policy manager and mortgage sector manager at the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority).

Blackwell said: “The tech developments that Uinsure are making have made the decision to join the team easy.

“The growth they have demonstrated in 2019 alone showcases the impact they are having on the mortgage market and I am delighted to join as we move into 2020.”

Parsons will work closely with Uinsure’s integration partners, embedding and optimizing digital innovation, focused on making the end to end process for both Advisers and clients as quick and easy as possible.

“I’ve been watching the innovations Uinsure have been making in the market and am excited to be joining them along this journey,” he commented.

“I am joining the team at an exciting point with some great developments already in the pipeline for 2020. I can’t wait to get started.”

Simon Taylor, chief executive at Uinsure, added: “The latest appointment of Lynda is a fantastic opportunity for Uinsure as she has great experience within risk and compliance and will certainly add substantial knowledge to the team.

“Uinsure has set out a clear mission for 2020 and Lynda’s support will enable us to make huge strides in achieving this.”
