NHBC announces new Head of Claims

NHBC, the leading warranty and insurance provider for new homes in the UK, has announced the appointment of Christine Smith as its new Head of Claims.

Christine has worked for NHBC for 21 years, undertaking a number of senior roles in Claims, Operations and Business Development, most recently as Head of Consultancy Services and a Director of NHBC Services Ltd.

Mike Quinton, NHBC’s Chief Executive said:

“We are delighted to announce the appointment of Christine Smith to Head of Claims. She has played a fundamental role within NHBC for a number of years across the business, but her in-depth knowledge of claims, including over ten years in claims management, will bring a wealth of experience to this position.”

As the principal home warranty and insurance provider and standards-setter for UK house-building, NHBC covers around 80% of new homes built in the UK and currently protects over 1.6 million homes with its 10-year Buildmark warranty.

Commenting on her new appointment, Christine said: “Much of NHBC’s reputation is built around the performance of our claims team, and I am excited to be part of this once again. Housing remains a key issue as the industry looks to meet the continuing demand for quality new homes that the country desperately needs.”
