Direct Insurance Group Plc (DIG), one of the UK’s leading commercial insurance brokers, has appointed its new human resources manager.

She joins from Earnest Doe & Sons in Essex where she was human resources manager, responsible for implementing a number of HR initiatives whilst also managing day-to-day recruitment, organisational development, and training strategies.
DIG appoints Johnson after significant growth, which saw the company enjoy a 33% increase in staff in the last twelve months.
This growth has been driven across all areas of the business by an increase in schemes development, namely the Direct Insurance London Market, BIBA endorsed Environmental Contractors scheme, also as part of its Latin American growth drive and its dedicated boost to the sports and leisure sector via its MGA, Imperium Insurance Management.
David Bearman, CEO of Direct Insurance Group plc, welcomed Johnson’s appointment.
