DAS further strengthens leadership team

18th August 2016

DAS UK Group, the largest provider of legal expenses insurance in the UK, today announced the appointment of James Henderson as Managing Director Insurance for both UK and Ireland.

James joined from Centrica and will report to DAS UK Group CEO Andrew Burke. James is the latest and final addition to Andrew’s senior team which has been significantly strengthened in the last 12 months.

Since Andrew Burke took over as CEO 18 months ago he has focused on transforming the business, supported by continued active investment from the ERGO Group with a key focus on improved governance and enhanced customer and partner propositions.

The company has invested heavily in external specialist skill sets and experience while also recognising and promoting internal talent.

Commenting on the new team, CEO Andrew Burke said:

“I am delighted that we have got a new team in place ready to take the DAS UK Group on to the next step in its transformation. DAS has a really important part to play in ensuring justice and legal services are accessible to all and not just the wealthy.

“Since joining 18 months ago, I have been absolutely focused on building stronger governance and controls, underpinned by a greatly enhanced offer to customers and partners.

“Recent political events have created uncertainty for all businesses and, while there may be challenges ahead, I know we are well-placed to face up to them. This is a very exciting time for the company and I am excited about our future.”
