"It is an impressive leader in motorcycle insurance with fantastic people, and I am absolutely honoured to be given the opportunity to help shape its future."
- Alan Atkins, new MCE Insurance chief executive

Prior to this promotion, Alan Atkins was appointed as an independent non-executive director of the company’s global expansion division which was launched in the second quarter. This division was created not only to expand MCE’s insurer claims handling model but also its motorcycle sales business.

Atkins will be working closely with Julian Edwards and the executive committee team over the coming months to develop the company’s “strategic opportunities” at pace, claims the new MCE chief executive.

Atkins continued that, having been on the MCE Insurance board since May 2022, he has a “good understanding of where the business has its strengths and what actions [the company] should take across [its] portfolio.”

Commenting on the appointment, Julian Edwards has said:

“On behalf of MCE Insurance, I am delighted to welcome Alan whom I have known personally for 28 years to the senior management team. Alan has an impressive leadership track record and a reputation for innovation and driving growth.

“We look forward to working with Alan as the group focuses on further market opportunities and delivering excellent products and services to customers.”

Alan Atkins added:

“The key objective will be to continue being the leader in our industry and the first choice for our customers. My focus will be on achieving that for the benefit of all our stakeholders and staff.”
