Leading specialist motorcycle insurance broker MCE has recruited Leonard Labinjo as finance director, bringing 15 years of strategic financial management experience with him. His appointment is the second recent addition to MCE’s leadership team, following Paul Ormiston joining as claims director a month ago.

While he will take full responsibility for MCE’s finance function, Labinjo said the strategic advisory role particularly appealed to him: “MCE has some fantastic corporate discipline, and I saw a senior management team with a real vision and passion for fully modernising the business. Clearly good financial governance and strategic insight is needed to do this — and that’s what excites me.”

MCE chief executive Julian Edwards added: “Insurance is changing. There’s been so much talk in the industry about digitisation and the insurtech future. But I’ve seen little evidence of many businesses actually making it happen. Now we have taken that step, with the technology to allow growth and diversification.  Leonard Labinjo’s appointment is a critical piece of the jigsaw.”
