KPMG has appointed James Hillon as a Director in its General Insurance team as it expands its product pricing capabilities.
James joins from Co-op Insurance where he spent 20 years in a variety of roles, most recently as Products, Pricing & Propositions Director. James’ role at KPMG is a new one, created to meet increasing client demand for pricing advisory. James will be based in the Manchester office.
David Brown, Partner KPMG comments: “It’s with an eye on the future that we’re strengthening our general insurance pricing team. General insurers are at a crucial stage. For years they have struggled with increasing pressure on pricing, but now we are starting to see ways to turn those challenges into opportunities. James’s industry experience makes him uniquely qualified to help clients recognise and realise such opportunities. The firms that will thrive going forward are the ones that adapt quickly to new technologies, while keeping their end customers at the centre of what they do.
“Placing James in Manchester means we are strengthening our team in a region where we anticipate considerable growth and client demand in part reflecting the success of the city in establishing itself as a leader in the digital and fintech sectors.”
James Hillon, Director, KPMG UK, adds: “Not only does KPMG’s consultancy team have a great balance of technical and practical expertise, but it is also forward looking. I’m especially interested in working with the team to fully understand and utilise what our strength in data science can offer our clients. I’m excited to be joining, and look forward to extending our client offerings.”
