Pay-as-you-drive online car insurer Coverbox – which is based in Stamford, Lincolnshire, and Billingham, Cleveland – has promoted two of its senior staff in anticipation of growth and development plans.
Matthew Vines, 37, has been appointed Associate Director – Strategic Partnerships, while Martyne Miller, 48, is now Associate Director – Brand Management.
Matthew, from Peterborough, has worked in banking and financial services marketing, including six years in a specialist web marketing business. He has been with Coverbox for 14 months, playing a key role in developing the business’ web presence and SEO status.
Martyne, from London, now living near Lincoln, has more than 20 years experience in sales and marketing. Having joined Coverbox as Office Manager, Martyne’s marketing experience made her a natural choice for the more senior role.
“Matthew and Martyne have been pivotal in the development of Coverbox and its imminent new behavioural car insurance product. Matthew has made vast progress in terms of establishing Coverbox’ web presence, while Martyne’s immersion in the business gives her an understanding of its development and direction – crucial experience. The promotions reflect their ability, commitment and their input to both Coverbox and the new product,” said Johan van der Merwe, Executive Chairman of Coverbox.
Matthew enjoys spending time with his wife and two young children, family, friends and watching or playing sports.
Martyne, who has a grown-up daughter, is in local amateur dramatics, theatre and dance.
