Avantia, the high-growth virtual insurer behind the Homeprotect brand, has expanded its team with the appointment of a Claims Director.

Stuart Forrester joins as Claims Director and will be responsible for building on the work already started to create a data driven high performing claims value chain.

Mark Eastham, CEO at Avantia Group, said: “Stuart’s appointment now completes our current phase of strategic investment in the operational capability of our business. We continue to experience double-digit growth and this growing customer base presents even greater opportunities for us to leverage our decisioning technology in the way we deliver customer experience and indemnity control. Stuart brings many years of senior operational and financial experience, in particular 10 years at Direct Line Group where Stuart held a variety of Executive roles including leading the claims operation, I am delighted to have him on board.”

Stuart Forrester, Claims Director at Avantia Group, said: “The potential to use the same decisioning capability that Homeprotect use in the rest of their value chain made this an opportunity that I could not have found elsewhere. The team have a great set of values, which make this an energising and collaborative place to work.”
