Leadership Changes Implemented at Two JN Member Companies

    JN Group

    As The Jamaica National Group continues to review and reorganise, it has made changes to the leadership structure at two of its member companies.

    JN General Insurance Company

    With effect from May 2, 2022, Chris Hind has been reassigned from his post as General Manager of JN General Insurance Company Limited (JNGI) to the role of executive in the JN Group’s CEO Office.

    JN Group Chief Executive Officer, Earl Jarrett, said Mr Hind has provided stellar leadership of the company over the past 15 years, and is well-positioned in his current role to add value to the Group’s strategic thrust.

    “He has successfully guided the organisation to significant accomplishments, including its successful name change, and the introduction of the first Motor Quote and Buy Online platform and strengthening the relationship with the broker community.”

    Dr Dana Morris Dixon has been appointed to the position of General Manager for JNGI, effective May 2, 2022.

    Dr Dixon joined the JN Group in June 2013 as Executive, Business Development and Research for the then Jamaica National Building Society. Starting in 2014, she led the Group’s Business Transformation Project to ensure the seamless and successful reorganisation of The Jamaica National Group, as well as the conversion of the deposit taking arm of the Society to a commercial bank.   She was also Project Lead for the development, regulatory approval and launch of JN Bank UK, the first Caribbean-owned bank to be established in the UK in 2020.

    She later served in various capacities, including Assistant General Manager, with responsibility for Group Marketing. Most recently, Dr Dixon was on secondment to the Bank of Jamaica as an advisor, where she worked with all relevant government agencies and private sector interests to complete the requisite work on all elements of the country’s risk assessment.

    She previously led the successful completion of the National Risk Assessment for Jamaica which is a key component of Jamaica’s Financial Action Task Force (FATF) Action Plan.  Dr Dixon also worked at JAMPRO in various capacities including as Acting President and was Director of Development Policy, Planning and Strategy in the Office of the Prime Minister.

    Mr Hind will support Dr Dixon with her transition, in addition to other special assignments, which will be advised.

    Mr Jarrett noted his confidence in the team who will support this transition in the JNGI leadership.  “JNGI is one of the best capitalized insurance companies in Jamaica, and the JN Group is confident about its future.  The JN Group and JNGI management team remain committed to our mission to be the best Jamaican general insurance company.”

    JN Fund Managers

    Mr Jarrett also advised that effective May 9, 2022, Allan Lewis will be reassigned from his position as Managing Director of JN Fund Managers, to the JN Group CEO’s Office as Special Assistant to the JN Group CEO.

    Mr Jarrett noted that Mr Lewis joined JN Fund Managers in 2016, and brings more than 30 years’ experience in financial markets. Mr Lewis is an Associate of the Society of Actuaries.

    “I am confident that Allan’s expertise and educational background in Actuarial Science will greatly support his reassignment and enable him to serve our member companies, including JNGI.”

    Mr Brando Hayden, who rejoined the Group as Assistant General Manager, JN Private Capital, in 2019, will assume the position of Managing Director at JN Fund Managers, effective May 9, 2022 and will retain portfolio responsibility for JN Private Capital.   He brings over two decades of diverse global experience to the Group, having specialized in asset management, trading and the management and growth of financial institutions.  He previously served as General Manager at JN Fund Managers during the period June 2013 to September 2016.
