These industry figures narrowly missed out on a place in Post's Powerlist for 2016. That's not to say they aren't influential. Here are Post's ones to watch over the coming months.
Patrick Snowball, former managing director and Group CEO, Suncorp
Industry stalwart Snowball, until recently the managing director and group CEO, of Australian bankassurer Suncorp, has returned to these shores. Where will he pitch up in 2016; and in what capacity
Indro Mukerjee, Group CEO, Watchstone
After 2015 saw a share price drop from 660p to 100p and 342 investors submit legal claims, Watchstone is the firm that emerged newly rebranded from the ashes of Quindell. Newcomer Mukerjee is set for a busy year, establishing his industry reputation and that of his new look business.
John Sutton, president UK & International opertaions, Integro
A deal with Odyssey Investment Partners at the end of last year is only likely to fuel the fire for Integro, which acquired more than six firms last year in the entertainment, motor and marine space. Northern broking powerhouse Hendersons has also been heavily linked with Integro, so will we be seeing more of Sutton and the Integro cheque book in the coming months?
Lemonade co-founders Daniel Schreiber and Shai Wininger
From Friendsurance to Bought by Many and Guevarra there has been a lot of speculation about the success or otherwise of peer-to-peer insurance. The latest firm to receive significant interest is US start up Lemonade founded by Schreiber (formerly the president of Powermat) and Wininger (a co-founder of Fiverr), that has raised $13m in a first round of funding. Some in the US are asking already whether it could do to peer-to-peer insurance, what Oscar did in the health cover sector.
