Former JNGI General Manager Chris Hind now assumes the role of executive in the JN Group’s CEO Office.

JN Group Chief Executive Officer Earl Jarrett said Hind has provided stellar leadership to the company over the past 15 years and is well-positioned in his current role to add value to the group’s strategic thrust.

“He has successfully guided the organisation to significant accomplishments, including its successful name change, the introduction of the first Motor Quote and Buy Online platform and strengthening the relationship with the broker community.”

Dr Dixon joined the JN Group in June 2013 as Executive, Business Development and Research for the then Jamaica National Building Society.

“JNGI is one of the best-capitalized insurance companies in Jamaica, and the JN Group is confident about its future,” Jarrett said.

The JN Group and JNGI management team remain committed to our mission to be the best Jamaican general insurance company,” he added.

As for Lewis, Jarrett stated: “I am confident that Allan’s expertise and educational background in Actuarial Science will greatly support his reassignment and enable him to serve our member companies, including JNGI.”
