Redde Northgate has appointed a new managing director for FMG Repair Services (formerly Nationwide Accident Repair Services).
Jason Tripp will start with the company on Wednesday 20 January to lead the business forward as part of the wider group, further to its acquisition by Redde Northgate in September 2020.
Tripp joins FMG Repair Services from Norwich-based claims management and insurance product specialist Coplus, and brings more than 20 years of experience of insurance claims and operational experience to the role.
“I’m excited at the prospect of joining FMG Repair Services at such an important point in its history, shortly after becoming part of Redde Northgate,” said Tripp. “2020 was certainly a challenging year for the business and its [staff], and I look forward now to working with the team to build towards a new future.
“The business has huge long-term potential, and its people are well-known in the industry as some of the best experts in their field. I can’t wait to get started,” he added.
Redde Busineses managing director Harvey Stead, who has been leading the early integration of the business into Redde Northgate, said: “Welcoming Jason as MD of FMG Repair Services marks the start of a new chapter in the Nationwide/FMG Repair Services story as we continue to plan and structure the business to best contribute to, and benefit from, being part of a group providing end-to-end mobility services for customers. We’re delighted to have him join us to take the business forward.”
