Atradius has appointed long-serving employee Marc Jones as their new head of sales for the UK.

Jones joined the trade credit insurer 12 years ago as group economist, and most recently spent four years in Asia with the company to work in Atradius’s group outward reinsurance division.

Specifically, Jones was based in Hong Kong where he became senior manager for risk, Asia Pacific, responsible for risk management across some of the largest Asia economies including China, Hong Kong and Japan.

“The head of sales role is a great opportunity for us to make the most of Marc’s broad experience,” says Alun Sweeney, regional director for Atradius UK and Ireland.

“His focus will be to develop our business alongside our brokers with a focus on the demands and individual needs of our prospects. We wish him every success in this new position,” Sweeney adds.
