Andrew and Alison are joining at a significant time for CPP Group which is spearheading its growth strategy in the UK through the InsureTech scene following its re-entry into the UK market in the first half of 2018.

Michael Whitfield commented:

“I’m delighted to have secured people of Andrew and Alison’s calibre to take up these important roles. Andrew has more than 20 years’ experience in the partnership industry, including financial services, automotive, data and affinity marketing, both in the UK and internationally. Alison brings a wealth of proposition delivery experience to the team, having run her own management consultancy firm after previously spending over 20 years in the affinity insurance market. Between them they’ve worked for some very high profile organisations and I’m thrilled they have decided to join CPP as we start our new business efforts in the UK.”

Andrew Jackson said:

“This is a great time to join CPP. I’m looking forward to meeting all our existing and prospective business partners. We have some really innovative products and opportunities in the pipeline and the next six months will be a very exciting time as we take our propositions to market.”

Alison Douglas added:

“It’s great to join the team at the start of this journey. Over the years I’ve worked on many new products and partnerships, however it’s clear that CPP have both the innovative outlook and the delivery capability to offer something really different to B2B partners and their customers.”

CPP Group is on a transformative journey and the continuing investment in its UK market supports their overall growth ambitions and is fundamental to achieving this.
