Chief Executive, Simon Margolis, and Managing Director, Bill Clynes of Premex Group received the prestigious lifetime achievement award at last night's Claims Innovation Awards. The award ceremony celebrates the success of individuals, teams and companies from across the Personal Injury sector demonstrating how they have innovated, raised standards and grown over the last year.
Simon formed Premex from a small office in 1996. A qualified GP who worked in the insurance industry Simon discovered a niche in an emerging market, with the industry recognising that medical agencies have a serious role to play in bringing speed, independence and convenience to the claims process.
In 2000 Bill joined Premex as Managing Director. Bill's background was in retail, managing stores in the North West. Since then the company has diversified into a number of complimentary markets delivering a range of products at different points in the customer journey and therefore Premex Group was born.
Simon, Chief Executive of Premex Group comments "I am really humbled to receive this recognition from my peers within the industry. Premex has been a huge part of our lives for over fifteen years and we have put our heart and soul into building the company to the successful medico-legal organisation it is now and it is fantastic to be acknowledged in this way."
2011 was a milestone year for Premex, it received its one millionth instruction, celebrated its 15thanniversary and became part of the global ExamWorks family of companies. Bill Clynes explains "The Personal Injury sector has changed considerably since we received our first instruction and this is a fantastic achievement. We have always been a forward thinking company and we will therefore continue to innovate and provide a service that meets the demands of a dynamic industry."
