The Santé Group has appointed Lee Pinnington to the board of its health and wellbeing business, Nugent Santé.
Promoted from compliance manager, Lee is now compliance director of Nugent Santé. His promotion follows recent board appointments to the business of Rob Rigby, sales director and Alison Wignall, director of operations.
Lee joined Nugent Santé in April 2019 as compliance manager after spending 11 years with Blackburn-based private medical insurance broker.
Santé Group chief executive, Paul Nugent, said: “I’ve known Lee from working together previously and was always impressed by his professionalism.
“Since joining us in 2019, Lee has been instrumental in delivering class-leading compliance systems that ensure we provide a high-quality service.
“He’ll play an essential role in helping develop the Santé Group of businesses as we look to expand our footprint in the North before growing the company nationally. His responsibility will be to guarantee a quality service while working with our other directors from the wider Santé Group in helping develop and communicating our competitive edge.”
The Santé Group now employs 27 people at its Lancashire headquarters but expects headcount to treble over the next five years.
