1st February 2017:
The former chief operating officer of LV Peter Horton has joined voice risk analysis specialist Digilog. Horton, pictured, was one of the founding executives of ABC Insurance alongside John O’Roarke, Steve Castle, Phil Bunker and Paul Cassidy, the business that was acquired by LV to transform its general insurance offering in 2006.
Before joining ABC and then LV, Horton was group operations director at Churchill when it was acquired by Royal Bank of Scotland in 2003. He then took control of the bank’s assistance division before departing in June 2005.
Since leaving LV in 2015 he became chief operations officer of Commercial Vehicle Partnership, a business that describes itself as the “conduit to bring the commercial motor fleet sector and insurers closer together”. David Brownsword, the founder and managing director of CVP, is also the chairman of Digilog.
Digilog managing director Lior Koskas said: “We are delighted that Peter Horton has agreed to join the Digilog executive team. Since Peter exited LV he has worked closely with Digilog on a number of new business opportunities.
“Given Peter’s wealth of industry expertise his contribution has been invaluable. I am extremely excited that someone of Peter’s calibre wishes to share in the growing success of Digilog.”
Horton added: “As COO of CVP my company has worked very closely with Digilog on numerous projects, seeing first-hand how Digilog has evolved as a service & diversified in to other sectors beyond insurance. Claims and underwriting remain at its core. I am looking forward to working with Lior & his team & sharing in their success.”
