Quartix appoints new chairman
Avril Palmer-Baunack has been appointed as non-executive chairman, bringing a wealth of international experience in the insurance, automotive and logistics sectors.
Palmer-Baunack is currently also chairman of both Helphire plc and Molins plc, and a finalist in this year’s Sunday Times Non-Executive Director Awards. Her previous roles include those of Chief Executive Officer of Autologic Holdings plc and Universal Salvage plc and Managing Director of FMG Support Ltd. Earlier positions in her career included management roles at EuropcarUK, Northgate Motor Holdings plc and the Caudwell Group.
‘I am very pleased to join Quartix and excited by the potential that it has for further development in both the fleet and insurance sectors,’ explained Palmer-Baunack.
Her appointment comes as the firm reports strong growth in both its fleet and insurance businesses over the last year, which helped increase sales by an unprecedented 60% in 2013, reaching a turnover of just over £13m.
The firm added that it has recently launched its vehicle tracking system in the USA and is expecting further growth in the fleet and insurance sectors in 2014.
