Helphire Group has consolidated its Helphire UK and Albany Assistance companies, into a single Accident Management business unit.
The re-structure comes as part of its drive to cut costs. It announced last week that it was looking to make 130 redundancies across its business as part of the restructuring process.
Helphire has appointed Martin Ward, previously managing director of Albany Assistance, as managing director of the newly formed Accident Management business.
Ward will continue to report to Helphire Group chief executive Mark Adams and assumes full operational responsibility for the newly formed business unit with immediate effect.
Adams said: “In December we announced a programme to improve the efficiency of our business.
"Removing complexity has been key to this and we are re-aligning our business to ensure that our service remains flexible, innovative and cost-effective for our partners and their customers.”
