Jelf appoints new Executive Director for Mergers and Acquisitions

0 1

Wayne Pontin has been appointed as executive director mergers and acquisitions for Jelf, reflecting the Group’s ambitions to grow its Employee Benefits arm.

Wayne has a wealth of experience in the healthcare insurance market, most recently as a sales development director for Jelf Employee Benefits. He has built up a huge network of contacts within the intermediated and insurer communities over the last 35 years, and is well placed to identify opportunities for growth via the purchase of businesses, along with the recruitment of individuals and teams, to complement Jelf’s organic growth. Wayne himself became part of Jelf through an acquisition – his own consultancy, Pontin & Stein Medical Insurance Specialists, in 2003.

Commenting on Wayne’s appointment Alex Alway, Jelf Group chief executive said: “To maintain the success of our Employee Benefits business, and to deliver our targets, we believe our organic growth should be coupled with acquisitive growth, as and when the right opportunity arises. With all the experience and contacts Wayne has, he is ideally placed to identify these opportunities.”

Wayne, who was recently honoured with a Health Insurance Lifetime Achievement Award, is currently Chairman of the Association of Medical Insurance Intermediaries and will continue this role as part of his appointment. He will also retain an advisory position on Jelf’s Healthcare Management team.
