Leading insurance and assistance provider, Collinson, has appointed Marianne Stevens and Michelle Elmore to its Accident and Health team, who join as Head of Underwriting and Head of Business Development respectively. 

Marianne is a technical pricing professional who joins Collinson from Bupa Global where she held a range of technical pricing and actuarial roles and has a deep understanding of the iPMI market. In her new role at Collinson, she will lead the Accident and Health underwriting team and take responsibility for underwriting performance within the Accident & Health portfolio. 

“I am thrilled to be joining a company that is able to combine traditional international health insurance knowledge with an impressive track record in designing and delivering bespoke client solutions,” Marianne commented. “In a world where instant access, greater security and comprehensive solutions are expected, Collinson is uniquely positioned to make a meaningful impact in the lives of our clients.”      

Michelle most recently worked in a senior role at health tech start-up Ada Health, where she used technology to develop personalised, engaging and connected healthcare propositions. At Collinson, Michelle will be accountable for identifying growth opportunities in carefully selected international territories.

“It is a really exciting time for healthcare companies to deliver contemporary solutions, especially by harnessing technology,” said Michelle. “The most agile and forward-thinking of these have the opportunity to revolutionise the way health insurance is delivered and consumed. Collinson is in a fantastic position to incorporate a variety of solutions – from loyalty to travel experiences and personalised insurance products – to address today’s new international healthcare consumers.”

Lawrence Watts, Collinson’s Commercial Director I&A, added: “We see the potential for International Health to play a significant role in continuing to support growth across Collinson’s Insurance and Assistance division over the next 3 years. These appointments come at a key time for our business as we continue to deliver innovative products and services that enhance and extend our healthcare offering.  I am sure Michelle and Marianne will prove invaluable to Collinson’s future prosperity and wish them every success in their new roles.”
