Claire Ginnelly joins Premier Choice Group
Claire Ginnelly, former head of distribution at Simplyhealth, has joined health insurance intermediary firm Premier Choice Group.
Until December last year, Ginnelly (pictured) was head of distribution at private medical insurance (PMI) and cash plan provider Simplyhealth, managing the former Groupama Healthcare key account management team following Simplyhealth’s acquisition of Groupama’s PMI business in 2012.
Prior to the acquisition, she had been head of distribution at Groupama since January 2007.
Ginnelly joins Premier Choice as head of PMI business development, and in her new role will be responsible for supporting members of the sales team and enhancing relationships with insurers.
Ginnelly has 22 years’ experience in the PMI industry and has also been head of intermediary sales at Standard Life Healthcare (now PruHealth).
Tom McGuinness, business development and HR director at Premier Choice, said the appointment is a “major coup” for the company, adding: “Claire is well known and very highly respected within our industry.”
