Health insurance and wellbeing specialist Nugent Santé has promoted two of its senior members of the team to its board of directors.
Rob Rigby and Alison Wignall, formerly head of sales and head of operations respectively, are now directors and have an equity stake in Nugent Santé. Rob is now director of sales, and Alison is director of operations.
The company sits within the wider The Santé Group, including life insurance business Santé Life and broker support business ArchAngel. It also includes a specialist private medical insurance broker network, Santé Partners.
Santé Group chief executive, Paul Nugent, commented on their promotions. He said: “Rob and Alison have been with the business since we started life in 2014 and have contributed significantly to the group’s success.
“They both share a passion for driving the business forward and have been instrumental in putting working practices in place that have enabled Nugent Santé to evolve and become one of the leaders in its field.
“As a group, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in the way businesses are prioritising health and wellbeing as a central function to how an organisation operates. With this, we need to respond quickly to changes in how businesses look after their people and make sure we have the products, service, and infrastructure to support our clients. Rob and Alison have made sure this happens.”
The Santé Group now employs 27 people at its Lancashire headquarters but will be expecting headcount to treble over the next five years.
