Paul Paddock has been appointed new head of insurance at Holiday Extras after ten years with the firm.

The company says he has “excelled” in his previous role as insurance product, performance and pricing expert.

Paddock joined Holiday Extras aged 17 and moved to become an insurance junior account manager within his first two years despite only having planned to join Holiday Extras for the short-term.

A Holiday Extras spokeswoman said: “His passion for all things insurance has led him to be the expert that he is today.”

Paddock added: “No two days are the same; my job allows me to be very social, I am often out and about entertaining partners and future clients.”

“I am extremely proud and excited to take on the role of head of insurance and support the team to drive our insurance business even further.”
